A boda boda rider reportedly saw this strange exchange and reported to security officers manning Sanga road block. The former police chief was discovered and recovered.

On many occasions we chastised his decision to always appear at the scene of crime within minutes of the crime happening, but could this explain the recent occurrences that see him being linked to some of these crimes?
