A few weeks ago, Recce Squad HQs in Ruiru were attacked by a highly-trained former General Service Unit (GSU) officer.
The officer identified as Constable Eric Ngethe Kanyigi, was nabbed by police officers in Mombasa County.
The arrest comes barely a month after police raided his home in Githurai 45 and recovered three AK 47 rifles, 178 bullets.
During the raid, Ruiru Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) boss David Chebii revealed that the former Recce officer had absconded duty in 2012 after joining the service.
Police had been trailing the ex-GSU officer since he escaped during the night operation at his house in Githurai.
