“We are also in persuit to recover the remaining amount and also identity the M-Pesa shops where the money was allegedly deposited for statements recording,” the court heard.

In his ruling, the magistrate ordered the four police officers be detained at Kayole Police Station and the other two at Ruai Police Station awaiting for the ruling on the plea by the Investigating officer.
