A middle aged man has been charged with fraudulently obtaining millions from businessmen claiming he was in position to sell them unregistered vehicles lying at a warehouse in Mombasa.

Sammy Ngugi Kabiruri alias Benson Njoroge Njogu on diverse dates between March 21 and May 6, 2017 jointly with others not before the court allegedly obtained Sh1,243,970 from David Mburu Baiya.

The accused is said to have posed as Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) officer in charge of container freight station Mombasa and in position to auction unregistered vehicle lying at custom warehouse at Kilindini in Mombasa.

In the second count, Ngugi and others not before the court while posing as KRA officials allegedly obtained Sh879,358 from Peter Kamau Maina using similar tricks on diverse dates between March 24 and April 29, 2017.

The accused was arrested on October13 in Nairobi. His alleged accomplices have since gone underground.
