Seven killed as police heighten war on insecurity

15 April 2014, 12:29 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Police killed four suspected gangsters in Nairobi as the war on insecurity went a notch higher in the capital.

Nairobi police boss Benson Kibue said that the four were shot dead by police late Monday night in Eastlands' Tena estate.

They were apparently mugging area residents and waylaying pedestrians when police received the news and proceeded to shoot down the four.

According to Kibue, the four were part of a group of six, though he did add that two of the gang members escaped.

An AK 47 rifle and a pistol were recovered from the dead gangsters.

" We urge members of the public to continue keeping vigilant and try report such cases as soon as possible to help police deal with such matters, Kibue appealed.

Three other gangsters were killed Monday in Ruiru close to the Kenyatta University campus after robbing a petrol station.

It is understood that KES 2 million had been robbed from the station, with police recovering KES 97800 from the slain gangsters.

Kibue has called on members of the public to be wary of suspicious looking individuals and to report such cases to police to avert possible robbery and terror incidents.

The country is currently on a heightened state of security following increased attacks on civilians by robbers as well as a high level of terror related incidences in recent months.
