M-Pesa robber shot dead, accomplices arrested

28 January 2014, 15:49 Arap Yego

Bungoma - Police in Bungoma shot dead a suspected gangster Monday night and arrested two of his accomplices who were fleeing after robbing an M-Pesa operator of an unknown amount of money.

The three thugs who were on a motorcycle accosted the money dealer at the outlet that is near the Bungoma town main stage just few minutes to 8pm pretending to be customers, only for one of them to brandish a gun and order the businessman to hand over the entire day's collection.

Policemen who were on patrol were alerted and they gave a chase to the robbers, who perhaps in an effort to confuse those pursuing them abandoned the motorcycle they had and got into a get away saloon car that was in town.

Confirming the incident, Bungoma County Administration Police Commander, Paul Soi said security agents pursued the robbers who were fleeing in the car and caught up with them at Sikata area that is about 5 kilometres away, in the outskirts of the town.

“One of them was gunned down and he died instantly and we managed to apprehend two others whom we are interrogating and will press charges against them. One AK47 firearm was recovered from the suspects,” said Soi.
