The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) has launched an investigation into an alleged case of robbery with violence in an estate surrounding the home of former Interior CS Fred Matiang’i.
The DCI officers have requested the court to grant them orders allowing them to extract CCTV footage from various security companies in the estate.
On February 10, the officers secured an order compelling Amsec Security Services to provide the footage from that night.
On Tuesday, the DCI officers filed a new application seeking to compel Bob Morgan Security to provide them with the footage as well.
The DCI is asking the court to issue an order compelling the manager of Bob Morgan Security to grant them access and extract CCTV footage from February 8, 6 pm, to February 9 midday, which is controlled by the security firm.
In the application, Chief Inspector Eunice Njue, who is leading the investigation, notes that the case involves an attempted robbery reported on February 9.
The preliminary investigations have established that Bob Morgan Security has CCTV cameras that covered the residential area where the incident occurred, and therefore the DCI needs to retrieve the footage for evidential purposes.
The DCI is worried that if the CCTV footage storage is not secured promptly, the crucial evidence may be lost, which would put the investigations at risk.
The police have also written a letter to the Karen Ngong View Estate Association requesting the CCTV footage from that night, in their effort to get all possible evidence.
