“Led by Gordwins Agutu, a serial fraudster who has had previous run-ins with the law, the two were arrested after they gained entry into the WanderJoy Party headquarters along Kiambu road and began harassing its proprietor demanding for a bribe to allegedly go slow on a land fraud case against him,” the police said.

The forcefully gained entry into the premises.
“The self-styled anti-graft director and his accomplice David Mburu, who introduced himself as the anti-corruption deputy director, went straight to Wandere’s office and made their demands without blinking an eye,” the police aid.
Detectives based at DCI headquarters got wind of the incident and immediately rushed to the premises, two kilometres away.
“Immediately after they arrived, the men who had accompanied Agutu and sealed off the compound posing as VVIP security detail while flashing walkie talkies, scampered for dear life towards Karura forest leaving their master and his deputy in the hands of our sleuths,” the police said.
“Agutu’s history in fraud stinks to high heaven.”
When the detectives based at our operations branch checked the DCI criminal database, they discovered that Agutu had previously been arrested in September 2017, masquerading as a Senior Superintendent of Police attached to the Criminal Investigations Department. In his possession were two other employment cards, all indicating that he held senior management positions at the Kenya Revenue Authority and Kenya Pharmacy and Poisons Board.
While masquerading as a surveillance officer in the Pharmacy and Poisons Board, the suspect is alleged to have closed down several hospitals for allegedly not meeting certain regulatory requirements.
On January 26, 2022, accompanied by his miscreant gang, Agutu had visited Sidai Oleng club along Kiambu road and attempted to abduct its owner John Ngugi, over undisclosed investigative cases that he was conducting against him.
“The suspect operates in hired top-of-the-range vehicles, which often use the wrong side of the road with strobe lights flashing on their rooftops and a siren blaring for other vehicles to give him way for his next mission,” the police said.
Detectives have been granted custodial orders to detain the suspect until Monday next week when the suspect will take the plea. Any person who may have fallen victim to the suspect’s tricks is urged to report to the DCI headquarters Serious Crimes Unit to file their reports.
