Police in Homabay town have arrested a lorry which is suspected to have been carrying 7800 crates of uncertified eggs which is estimated to cost Ksh. 2.7 million which came from Uganda and were being transported to Rodi Kopany.
Confirming the incident, the officer in charge of criminal investigations in Homabay county Abel Kavoo said that their investigations indicated that the eggs were brought into the country against the law since they had no certification details. He said that the lorry’s driver also used the wrong routes to get into the country.
Kavai went ahead to say that the lorry was arrested by police officers at a time that the driver was trying to escape when the goods were being inspected by the Kenya Revenue Authority.
he said that it forced police officers to inflate the lorry’s tires using bullets so that they could arrest the driver but the driver managed to escape, as the lorry is being held at Homabay police station as investigations are on going in search for the driver.
