Two officials of Wajir County on Monday morning presented themselves at the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) headquarters in Nairobi.

Mr Daud Abdulah Omar the Finance executive and Siyad Ibrahim Ahmed the Manager KCB Bank in Wajir presented themselves at Integrity center at 6:00 AM.

The two were summoned by EACC in connection to the embezzlement of Sh26.1 million.


This comes exactly two days after detectives from EACC and police officers arrested Mr Jeff Kithinji the head of treasury and Mr Ahmed Sahal Omar the Wajir county secretary in connection to the investigations.

On Saturday EACC boss said that the county government and Kenya Commercial Bank conspired and irregularly withdrew that amount from the County’s account.

The suspects are expected to be arraigned in court later on Monday.
