The officer said he had been sent by the provincial administrator to deliver Sh40,000 for a man be recruited on Monday.
But instead, the officer forwarded the message to the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC).
On Tuesday, EACC spokesman Nicholas Simani told The Standard that investigation was ongoing.
“The commission cannot confirm or deny that the DC has been arrested, until we conclude our investigation,” he said.
The officer was arrested by his colleagues and was expected in court on Tuesday to face corruption charges.
Military spokesman Bogita Ongeri said that more people were being conned despite warnings that the exercise was free.
It is estimated that more than Sh22 million has been paid in bribes since the exercise began three years ago.
“People don’t seem to learn because we continue to receive complaints of people being defrauded. This exercise is free,” said Ongeri.
