Suspect netted with pistol hidden under his inner wear

23 June 2014, 15:37 Kelvin Wanjohi

Nyahururu - Police in Nyahururu arrested two robbery suspects with a Cesca pistol and ten 9 millimeters bullets Friday evening.

Confirming the incident, Nyandarua OCPD Benjamin Onsongo said the suspects were arrested heading to Nyahururu town from Manguo slums.

Onsongo said that the pistol and the ammunition were hidden in one of the suspect’s inner wear.

He added, “The gun is very powerful and in serviceable condition; it could have killed very many people were it not for the arrest and recovery.”  

The police boss said that police got a tip from members of the public that the suspects were planning to raid one of the supermarkets in Nyahururu town.

Onsongo disclosed that the two suspects confessed that they had attacked a woman in Nairobi’s Githurai Estate and stole KES 600 000 from her, and robbed another person of KES 400 000.  

The arrest comes barely a month after a prominent businessman in Nyahururu was shot and badly wounded while taking KES 800 000 to the bank.

Onsongo said the suspects will soon be arraigned in court where they will be charged with being in possession of an illegal firearm and preparing to commit a felony among other charges.
