Man who fabricated criminal charges against ex-girlfriend detained

06 October 2016, 17:45 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - A jilted man who allegedly framed his former girlfriend in fake crimes has been detained for five days to allow police complete investigations.

Ibrahim Ndirangu Ndung’u was arraigned in a Nyeri magistrate’s court but could not take plea following prosecution’s application seeking more time, reasoning that investigating police officers were not through with their exercise.

Ndung’u is said to have filed four false charges against his former lover Rose Wanjiru in five police stations countrywide claiming she defrauded him KES.165,000 in year 2002.

State Counsel Festus Njue had urged Resident Magistrate Phillip Mutua to allow police hold the suspect for ten days.

Njue said the suspect has several other cases including forgery which are subject to probe.

However, the suspect’s lawyer Ann Thungu opposed the application for deferment of plea arguing that police would not have arrested him without complete investigations.

She told the court that the suspect was arrested in Kasarani Nairobi Wednesday and left his house unlocked and that his household items are in danger.

“During arrest the suspect was not given time to lock his house. His property are in danger of being stolen,” said the lawyer as she prayed for bond.

Thungu added that Ndung’u is entitled to personal liberty and that he is not threat to witnesses in the case, pledging that he will attend court proceedings and avail himself to police whenever needed.

In his ruling, the magistrate ordered that the suspect be detained at Nyeri central Police station up to October 10 when the case was slated for mention.

Police were also ordered to escort him to his house and lock it to ensure his household items are safe.

Ndung’u is also alleged to have given false information to police, faked court police warrants and forged exhibits including a fake logbook in his efforts to strengthen the case against his former lover who is a teacher
