Four police officers have been arrested in connection with the July 24, 2022 disappearance of two Indian nationals and a Kenyan.

The missing persons were abducted on Mombasa Road near Ole Sereni Hotel and driven away in a vehicle that did not have registration plates.

The Indian nationals are said to have been in the country as part of President William Ruto's IT team ahead of the August 9, 2022 General Election.

It is suspected that officers of the Special Service Unit, which has since been disbanded, were responsible for the abduction of the Indian nationals, Mohamed Zaid and Ahmad Khan, and the Kenyan man identified as Nicodemus Mwania.

Mwania was the driver of a vehicle hired by the Indian nationals.

Four police officers suspected of involvement in the trio's abduction have been arrested and are being held separately at Kilimani, Kileleshwa and Capitol Hill police stations.

The four are a Chief Inspector of Police and three Police Constables.

The suspects' lawyer, Danstan Omari, told The Standard that police intend to charge his clients with kidnap, abuse of office and conspiracy to commit a felony.
