13 bullets fired, no evidence found by police

06 March 2015, 13:05 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - A businessman who was shot at 13 times by gunmen in Nairobi was killed by highly professional killers as no cartridges of the bullets were found on the scene by police. 

The man, a land dealer named Paul Ngugi Kariuki was killed along Nairobi's Forest Road Thursday evening in a hail of bullets by gangsters who waylaid him as he negotiated a bump.

The 2 AM incident was well executed, as the gunmen did their best to conceal their efforts by not allowing excess evidence to be found by police.

It is understood that six of the 13 bullets connected with the body of the late Kariuki.

" They must have been highly skilled gunmen because there were no cartridges found on the scene," Police spokesperson Zipporah Mboroki told the media.

" It was well executed and to this point we have no leads on the killers," she added.

Police believe that the murder is linked to land deals the deceased was involved in, as evidenced by his case pending in court over a land deal gone sour in which he was accused of defrauding a potential buyer of KES 100 million.

They believe that he was likely to have been killed not directly because of the ongoing court case but likely other deals.

Police have also said that they will question Ms Susan Nyambura who was with Kariuki on the night he was murdered.

She was injured on the chin in the incident and treated and discharged from hospital, while Kariuki's body was taken to the city mortuary.

The police spokesperson was also at pains to explain the increased cases of specialized murders in the city, coming just a few weeks after the murder in similar fashion of former Kabete MP George Muchai.

" They are worrying but we are looking at them and investigations are underway," she added.
