Five suspected thugs shot dead in Ruai

08 July 2014, 12:20 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi – Nairobi Police Commander, Benson Kibue has said that police shot dead five suspected thugs in a botched robbery in Ruai area.

Kibue confirmed the recovery of a pistol and two cars the suspects were using to commit the crime saying they also attempted to steal a Toyota car parked at a shopping centre at 4am, Tuesday.

He said the police on patrol were timely alerted and after the gun-down, the officers found the deceased suspects in possession of four sets of master keys.

“The officers on patrol managed to get the robbers and recovered a revolver pistol, a toy gun and knives from the men. We believe they are part of a gang that has been disturbing the area residents,” said Kibue.

The Police Commander said Ruai residents have been complaining of unceasing attacks by armed men who steal property and cash.

Kibue said the suspects' bodies were taken to the mortuary and urged the public to work closely with the police in reporting any suspicious cases of crime.
