“Acting on a tip-off by a concerned member of the public on a notable spillage and the impunity with which the illegal business operated just next to a supermarket and an open-air market along KCC Road, the officers moved in to the compound that was concealed by a temporary iron sheet fence,” the statement shared by DCI reads in parts.

During the raid, the detectives confiscated a trailer, two fuel tankers, generators fitted with hosepipes, funnels, 20 litres jerrycans and several tanks containing unestablished amounts of siphoned fuel.

The suspects involved in the crime evaded arrest through a panya route after they got wind of police presence through their informers.

“After preliminary investigations, detectives believe that the operators are linked to the April 12, 2024 raid conducted behind Shell petrol station off Lunga Road in Nairobi where 41 suspects were rounded up and charged, but the five tankers found at the site later released through a court order,” DCI added.
