The contents of alleged Dutch cookies served to guards manning the Trans National Bank have puzzled the police.
But police are speculating that the cookies, which made the guards sick, are often fed to stallions to increase their mating abilities. They have also questioned claims by George Ayugi, an ally of Deputy President William Ruto, that he bought the snacks at Schiphol Airport in Netherlands.
When the guards were served the biscuits it took less than an hour before they started complaining of fatigue, high temperature, dizziness and experienced sustained erections.
Central police boss Patrick Oduma said they suspect the biscuits are fed to horses to boost their libido.
“We are still waiting for the report from the Government Chemist before we know the way forward,” he said on October 16.
Earlier, Oduma told The Nairobian: “They (guards) have given us samples of the biscuits and we will test them to establish if they are laced with any drug that may have caused the problem. We are informed they started experiencing dizziness, headache and had arousals.”
Meanwhile, Ayugi was on October 16 grilled by police and recorded a statement before being released on a Sh20,000 bail.
