While airing his case at a Mombasa court on Tuesday, the complainant, Stephen Vicker Mangira, informed the court that Haji had robbed him of a briefcase worth Sh20 million before later returning it with Sh2.6 million less.
At the time, Haji, who a National Intelligence Service (NIS) officer and was in the company of
other police officers including head of Anti-Narcotics Unit Hamisi Massa. They raided the hotel and proceeded to enter Mangira’s vehicle without a warrant and without being a police officer as spelt under the law.
Mangira would later be arrested and charged with money laundering and drug trafficking.
Here’s the statement that Mangira divulged to the court through his lawyer:
“Noordin Haji who was previously a National Intelligence Service officer and Hamisi Salim Massa jointly stole KSh 2, 600,000 that was part of KSh 20 million that was stashed in two bags in the boot of my V8 car,”
