NAKURU, KENYA: A suspect believed to be involved in the theft of Presidential Escort car has been remanded by a Nakuru court for further investigations. The suspect Aggrey Odhiambo Achieng who was charged with handling suspected stolen property was remanded in Nakuru Central Police Station.
Principal Magistrate James Mwaniki granted the Prosecution’s application to have Odhiambo remanded in Nakuru Police station after hearing that the suspect was willing to give information relating to the theft of presidential escort car.

pOdhiambo denied both charges of being in possession of suspected stolen car and imitation of a firearm. Court granted the prosecution more time until September 22 when the case will be mentioned.
