Kimathi University students on Monday went on strike over what they termed as increasing wave of insecurity sweeping the institution.
They strike came after some students were robbed their valuables on Friday night.
Items such as gas cylinders, laptops and phones were taken at gun point forcing the students to go on rampage.
The students matched to Nyeri town chanting 'haki yetu'.
What was initially supposed to be a peaceful demonstration turned into violence when some students started to loot property thus forcing the police officers to fire teargas at them.
The students however engaged the police in a cat and rat game.
Their effort to meet the PC was thwarted when the town residents, armed with timber and rods, reinforced the police and started chasing them.
