Police Recover 169 Phones, 25 Laptops Stolen From Nairobians

Police have on Wednesday recovered 169 assorted mobile phones stolen from Nairobi residents.

In a tweet shared by the National Police Service (NPS), Regional Commander of Police Rashid Yakub ordered for an operation following numerous complaints on Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai’s #EngageTheIG.

In the last 48 hours, police have recovered the mobile phones, 25 laptops and desktops.

“Following several complaints on #EngageTheIG about rampant loss of phones, Nairobi Regional Commander of Police Mr. Rashid Yakub ordered for an operation that has netted 169 mobile phones and more than 25 laptops and desktops in the last 48 hours,” a tweet read.

Nairobians who have lost phones and computers in the last couple of days have been advised to report to the Nairobi Regional Police Headquarters (Opposite Integrity House) for property identification.

They will, however, be required to provide proof of ownership before the gadget is released.

“Those who have lost phones, laptops and cameras in recent past are requested to go to the Nairobi Regional Police Headquarters (Opposite Integrity House) and identify their property. Proof of ownership will be required before gadget is released,” the tweet read on.
