Nyeri - Armed thugs broke into Kihuti High School in Mukurwe-ini sub-County and stole property worth thousands of shillings on Thursday night.
According to area deputy commissioner, Isaac Masinde, the thugs who were armed with pangas and rungus invaded the school at midnight and stole four computers and a public address system machine all worth KES 300,000.
Masinde told the press that the robbers gained entry after making a call to one of the two guards who were guarding the institution.
He added that the thugs pretended to be students intending to do revision for examination in the computer lab.
Masinde said once the guards opened the gate, they were immediately confronted by five men who ordered them to lie down. They then tied their hands and legs with ropes and then proceeded to the computer lab where they broke the window grills and took away the gadgets.
He said police have launched manhunt for the robbers.
The administrator asked the school principals in the area to start vetting their employees before entering into employment terms saying the incident could be an inside job.
