GSU Officer Who Robbed Supermarket In Kisii Arrested

police Constable 1707283943

A General Service Unit (GSU) officer is in police custody after members of the public cornered him in a violent robbery on February 3, 2024.

In a statement, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) said the officer who has been identified as Edgar Opollo was saved from a furious mob by Kisii Central police who were on patrol, after finding the armed suspect under a hail of hefty blows.

“On inquiry, the officers established that the suspect had robbed a smartphone from a Kisii University student, and on frisking the injured suspect found the phone. He was arrested and escorted to the station,” read the statement in part.

The police constable was also found to be part of an armed gang that robbed Ksh 40,000 from Peps Mini Supermarket on January 2, 2024.

The incident was captured by CCTV cameras showing three robbers who had partly covered their faces, two of whom were armed, one with an AK47 and the other with a pistol. The rifle bearer had police fatigues on, but it was not apparent that he was a police officer.

Following Opollo’s arrest, an identification parade was conducted where the supermarket owner successfully identified him as one of the robbers who accosted him.

“Further investigations have revealed that the suspect is a General Service Unit officer deployed in Kisii. He continues recuperating under police guard at a Kisii hospital pending interrogation and arraignment for robbery with violence,” DCI added.
