Sleuths arrest Joseph Gakono after getting hints from the public. He has been obtaining money through false pretence and fraud. 



According to Police records, several people recorded statements over fraud and cheating from Gakono and his associates.



According to Gichugu sub-county Police commander Anthony Mbogo, detectives were trailing the suspect following numerous accusations.

Various victims said had been threatened with death after asking their money back.


The suspect is also said to have been on his hide-out after getting intelligence of his coming arrest.
