A source at the Naguru police headquarters has revealed that Ochola ordered for the probe after documents meant for the top police leadership were found with junior officers.
According to sources, some of the people being probed were surprised when they were ordered to temporarily surrender their mobile phones while some were found with confidential information restricted to the IGP’s office.
The civilians, according to sources were deployed at Naguru police headquarters through the Public Service Ministry.
There are reports that the IGP intends to complain to the Ministry of public service about civilians leaking information since it is responsible for their deployment.
