The Directorate of Criminal Investigations on Saturday swooped on a syndicate selling illegally siphoned oil to unsuspecting customers in Siaya County.
The Detectives nabbed a number of bootleg operators as well as seizing some apparatus used for siphoning fuel from tankers.

The suspects pumped fuel out of tankers before selling it to the unsuspecting members of the public.

 DCI announced that it dismantled the operations of a syndicate that illegally siphoned fuel and sold it to unsuspecting Kenyans.

The detectives camped in the Sindindi area along the Kisumu-Busia Road, where the bootleg oil business had picked up.


According to the investigative agency, the suspects mainly capitalised on fuel tankers involved in accidents.

They had pumps and a reservoir into which they would store their loot awaiting sale.

After noting the illegal business, the DCI deployed a team from the Operation Support Unit (OSU) to pursue the suspects.

The suspects had pumps to siphon fuel with.
The aim of the operations, the DCI said, was to curb the siphoning trend that has time and again occasioned tragic infernos, and to eradicate the sale and distribution of adulterated fuel.

The area around Sidindi has witnessed some of the most tragic fuel tanker accidents recorded in the country.

A group of suspects were arrested as the DCI cleared their station of operation.

The DCI cautioned Kenyans against undertaking such ventures due to the dangers linked with it, urging them to embark on other legitimate businesses.
