Molo Officer Commanding police Station (OCS), Ann Kanori on Friday, July 2, 2021 spent her night in police custody after she was arrested by Ethics and Anti-Corruption (EACC) detectives following graft allegations.
Kanori was arrested a few minutes past 9 pm by Ethics and Anti-Corruption (EACC) officers after more than five hours of interrogation at Molo Police Station.
While confirming the incident, Nakuru County Deputy Police Commander Joseph Tonui stated that the officer would be held at Railway Police Station in Nakuru town pending her arraignment in court.
“The OCS will spend her night behind bars, as EACC interrogates alleged grafts against her in the recent past,” Tonui said.
Tonui revealed that a scuffle ensued at the station when the officer resisted arrest by the EACC officers.
However, Molo sub-county police commander Samuel Mukusi intervened and the OCS was escorted to one of the awaiting vehicles by the detectives under tight security of more than five vehicles.
“The OCS was hesitant to accompany the EACC officers, but she eventually agreed to go after other officers intervened, “Tonui said.
Four other officers from the Molo police station, who were reported to have been involved in the attack of the said EACC officers, are being held at the Central Police Station.
The Molo OCS will be grilled over increased cases of corruption against her.
This comes after Kanori’s house help on Thursday, May 28, 2021 disappeared in Molo area, Nakuru County with nearly Ksh. 1 Million that she had kept in her house in form of her savings.
