EACC arrests imposter extorting people purportedly to shield them from corruption investigations

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has caught an imposter who was acting as an EACC Investigator and extorting money from people claiming to be conducting investigations in which they were mentioned negatively. 

According to a source, Ibrahim Ngamau Wangari was detained by EACC officers on Friday, November 25, at Quivers Lounge on Thika Road, following a complaint. 

Wangari is accused of being one of the renowned imposters and fraudsters on the loose who pose as EACC Investigators and demand money and other favours from state officers in both the national and county administrations, ostensibly to shield them from corruption investigations or prosecution.

Investigators disqualified Ngamau after receiving a complaint from a miller who had been enlisted by the government to supply subsidised maize flour just before the 2022 elections.

Ngamau’s forty-days were terminated after a bungled plot to blackmail the unidentified complainant.

On November 21, Ngamau allegedly began calling the merchant, alerting him that he was conducting inquiries into the Ministry of Agriculture about the provision of subsidised maize flour.

He promised the businessman to ensure that no adverse findings would be made against him and that he would also aid the businessman in obtaining any outstanding payments from the Ministry in exchange for an amount of money they would agree on at a meeting.

Ngamau’s strategy, however, went awry when the businessman filed a complaint with EACC after he invited the businessman to appear before him on Friday, November 25, at the EACC Integrity Centre Offices for an interview and statement recording.

According to the source, Ngamau ordered the complainant to bring all of the documents he used to supply the subsidised maize flour, including the Tax Compliance Certificate, audit reports, and all of his bank account statements from January 2022, for inspection as part of the “ongoing investigation.”

Ngamau shifted the meeting site to Quivers Lounge on the day of the meeting since it was more convenient for their discussion. The purpose of the conference was to determine how much Ngamau would be compensated for his assistance.

Ngamau is being held at the Kilimani Police Station pending his arraignment.
