Nairobi - A CID officer was shot dead in Nairobi in an incident which has been described as sinister by fellow officers.
The officer was shot dead 4 AM in Nairobi's Santon area in Kasarani, in what Police believe was a set-up to finish off the highly decorated officer.
The officers were sent out to answer to a distress call but according to Police, once they got there, two of them, they were immediately ambushed.
" We have lost a serious officer and we are very sad. We believe it could be the case of a set-up but we are still investigating," Nairobi Police boss Japheth Koome told News24.
The officer died on the spot in the incident.
His fellow officer managed to escape and gave out the details of the incident to Police seniors.
The slain officer whose name was withheld was known as a hard to crack one and that he had put may thugs in the city to the sword in the past.
The incident comes just a day after a Policeman nearly died after he was stabbed by thugs in Nairobi's Kariobangi area.
