Policemen who arrested a suspected criminal have been shocked to the marrow after throwing her into detention only to later discover that the suspect in question is not a female as they were made to believe.
According to the police patrol team, they had arrested the 24-year-old suspect who identified herself as Farida Chemutai during night patrols dressed like a female and suspected she was up to something mischievous.
Neighbours told local reporters that the suspect had moved into the neighbourhood recently and not much information was known of ‘her’ and therefore tipped the police she could be a criminal operating under the cover of darkness.
The police therefor managed to arrest her during a swoop and at the police station, officers found out that the suspect is man whose name is Mutuku Nzambia from another far area.
During questioning he revealed that he was invited to Lamu by his friend named Zainab Wambua who lives in the area.
The friend was yet to meet him since he arrived in the area.
A man who was living with him, who police believe is the owner of the house, managed to escape after seeing police officers.
Meanwhile, the suspect is being detained in custody pending further interrogation, according to Kenyan police.
