This afternoon, Monday, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) took to twitter posting that police had arrested the very known and controversial-courting blogger Cyprian Andama Nyakundi and his counterpart Emmanuel Nyamweya Ong'era on allegations of extortion, blackmail and false accusations.
“Detectives based at Gigiri have today afternoon arrested two suspects namely Cyprian Andama Nyakundi and Emmanuel Nyamweya Ong'era after successful investigations touching on extortion, blackmail and false accusations,” DCI posted.
The post went ahead and clarified that the two had just received Sh1 million from one of their victims, being a down payment of Sh17.5 million they had earlier demanded as a precondition for pulling down libelous posts appearing on a website allegedly owned by the suspects. The directorate said the exhibit money was recovered and that the suspects will be arraigned on Tuesday.
