“The police however had not canceled the report and were still in pursuit of the perpetrator who had stolen the car,” Njenga stated.
Njenga pointed out that the police officers who took up the investigations found Gitonga with the Nissan Note this past week and claimed he was the suspect which led to his arrest.
“Fortunately, the officer who was following up on the case in January 2021 recognised him and affirmed that Uhunye had initially filed the report,” the manager detailed.
