Four suspected thugs gunned down in Nairobi

11 November 2013, 10:22

Nairobi - Police killed four suspected thugs in a botched robbery incident in Nairobi.

Nairobi police chief Benson Kibue said the robbers used a stolen vehicle to carry out their mission in Nairobi’s Buruburu area, Sunday night.

According to witnesses, the police managed to intercept the thugs and shot the four while a fifth managed to escape, The Standard reports.

Cases of insecurity have been on the rise in the city and its environs. Last week police gunned down five suspected carjackers in botched carjacking incidents in Nairobi's Dagoreti, Ngando and Ngong areas.

The five had hijacked two Citi hoppa buses when the passengers alerted the police who responded quickly and killed the carjackers.

Police are struggling to curb cases of carjacking and robberies which have been on the rise in the city.
