The BMW was stolen from Chief Inspector David Machui Maina, who was driving into his home compound in Utawala, Nairobi, when four armed men confronted him.
They forced him into the back seat and drove off. They abandoned him a few metres from the Administration Police Training College in Embakasi six hours later.
