An aide to the deputy governor disclosed that detectives ordered Maangi to enter their car and drove him off the DCI offices in Kisii for grilling. “We don’t know why they arrested him, they did not give reason why they were picking him. They only told him to enter their car before they left to Central Police Station where they are interrogating him,” said an aide.
