Businessman shot dead

05 April 2013, 16:35 Wangui Joseph

A middle aged businessman was on Wednesday night shot dead at Ngangarithi estate in Nyeri town during an attack by unknown gunmen.

The deceased, Boniface Mwangi Nderitu, 39, was killed at about 8.00 pm by the armed thugs at his M-Pesa business premises.

Confirming the incident, the Nyeri OCPD Kirunya Limbitu said the murder incident was reported by a local resident who heard a gun shot.

The OCPD said the deceased was shot on the head from behind, inside his shop by two gunmen who had posed as customers.

He said after shooting the man dead, the gunmen who were armed with an AK 47 rifle escaped using a standby motorbike towards Gitathiini area.

Limbitu said police recovered 7.62 mm of an empty cartridge of AK47 rifle at the scene.

They removed the body of the deceased to Nyeri General Hospital mortuary.

The security police boss said nothing was stolen during the incident, saying they are undertaking investigation to unearth the motive of the killing.
