Tuesday, March 8, 2022 – Nairobi Traffic Police Commander, Joshua Omukata, has confirmed that some of the Boda Boda riders who were captured on a viral video assaulting a female motorist have been arrested.
According to the police boss, 16 suspects linked to the incident were detained at Parklands Police Station after the clip went viral and five motorcycles impounded.
The incident happened on Friday, March 4 after the lady reportedly hit a pedestrian but only went viral yesterday after it was shared on Twitter.
In the video clip, the lady was seen being accosted by a group of Boda Boda riders who circled her vehicle and started harassing her.
Afraid of her safety, she attempted to drive away but could not get far due to heavy traffic.
The gang quickly caught up with her and started pulling her out of the vehicle as she screamed for help.
The suspects will be charged with robbery with violence after it emerged that they robbed the lady of her phone and cash worth Sh 130,000 during the dramatic incident.
President Uhuru Kenyatta has since ordered a crackdown on all bodaboda operators across the country after the incident.
