Detectives in Nyamira have arrested a brother-in-law to Governor John Nyagarama over fraud, it has been established.

Mr. Hillary Obutu, a brother to First Lady Naomi Nyagarama, has been on the run since last week after several locals registered complaints over his trickery attitude.

Area top detective Millicent Ochuka confirmed latest development, adding that the suspect will remain in custody to allow more investigations.

"This isn't a new case. We have several complaints about him. We'd tried to have the cases solved outside but it couldn't be possible," she said.

Among the issues he will answer is conning unsuspecting locals between Sh200,000 to 300,000 on the pretext that he'd allow them secure employment in the county government.

A victim (name withheld), said he'd tried to solve the matter with the suspect out of court but the move did not work.

"I am happy that he's now behind bars. Some top security officers have been protecting him from facing the law."

The suspect was arrested at 5pm but the DCI could not reveal where he was taken for interrogation. It is believed that he might have been taken to Kisii.

He is one of reinforcement officers in Nyamira County and at times he drives the county's fire engine.
