A Kenyan man parading himself as a soldier has been arrested after he invaded a police station to ferment trouble.
27-year-old George Onderi in a militay uniform, stormed Suneka Police Station Report Office, while pretending to be a Military Police Sergeant.
He arrived the police station around 9pm in a Toyota Belta car, and declined effort to identify himself to Deputy OCS before proceeding to the station building.
The fake soldier was said to have confronted Constable Mary Maina while wearing an inappropriate jungle uniform.
Onderi was immediately arrested after he failed to identify himself, and he is now being held at the station waiting for a full investigation from the DCI officers.
A statement released by the Kenyan police read; ”Police officers in Kisii are holding a suspect who stormed Suneka Police Station Report Office desk donning the jacket of a Military Police Sergeant and dragged out a female police officer who he alleged wore inappropriate police jungle uniform.
In the 9pm incident yesterday, the imposter, 27-year-old George Onderi arrived at the station in his Toyota Belta car, parked and proceeded to the station building where he confronted Constable Mary Maina, the police officer on duty at the report office desk on allegations she wore a pair of uniform with the wrong jungle print. The intruder violently pulled the lady officer from her duty post which prompted the immediate intervention by her colleague and the duty officer.
The suspected Military Imposter is reported to have declined efforts to identify himself before the Deputy OCS Suneka, IP Cephas Ombija. He is being held at the station as DCI officers are investigating to establish any connection to acts of criminality in the area. He will be arraigned for charges of Impersonation and Creating disturbance.
In the past, we have witnessed incidences where criminals have unlawfully used the identity of our traditional security outfits to advance criminal activities. While we caution the public against imposters who are out to advance acts of fraud and other forms of criminality, we urge the public to seek for services from designated security installations and, to report to authorities any suspected imposter.”
