23 September 2014, 20:59 Ken Wekesa

Mombasa - Detectives investigating the  robbery of over KES 18 million involving four men nabbed at the Jomo Kenyatta international airport have opposed their release on bail.

In a sworn affidavit, the detectives said the accused Charles Mulwa, Patrick shiundu, Joseph Mbugua and Raphael Rotich are wanted criminals suspected to have been involved in a series of bank robberies in Mombasa.

CPL Moses Muriithi told magistrate Victoria Kachuodho that they need seven days to complete their investigations into the case since seven complaints in Nairobi and Mombasa have yet to be addressed.

“We need 7 days to contact some of the complaints who are in Nairobi and also request that the accused be remanded at port police” said Muriithi.

Earlier police in Mombasa had paraded suspects at the  central police station in an effort aimed to assist the witness to positively identify the suspects.

The four suspects who include administration police officers were arrested by the flying squad officers at the Jomo Kenyatta international airport where KES 400,000 was recovered.

The four are said to have  alighted from Mombasa where they are said to have been posing as police officers and kidnapping bank customers before stealing from them.

The deputy county commissioner of Mombasa Robert Kitur said the arrest was a big breakthrough in fighting crime in Mombasa because they believe the four have been terrorizing Mombasa resident.

Magistrate Kachuodho directed that the four be remanded at pobbcrt police to enable [police conclude their investigations.

The case will be mentioned on September 26 2014.
