GSU police officer found to be a fraud

24 March 2016, 14:23

Migori – An impostor was apprehended in Migori for posing as a General Service Unit Officer (GSU) attached to the Internal Affairs Police Unit in Nairobi.

According to Citizen TV the impostor was busted when he went to the GSU offices to introduce himself and told officers that he had been on sick leave.

However they had already got wind of an impostor lurking about therefore an order for arrest had already been put out.

Police also searched his house where they found police uniforms, handcuffs, among other items.

His court date is set for next week Thursday.
