Nairobi - Police in Nairobi on Sunday shot dead four suspected thugs near Nyayo stadium and recovered two guns and 60 rounds of ammunition.
The four had allegedly kidnapped a woman at city centre and were demanding a ransom of KES 100,000 when police started trailing them through the victim's family members.
Daily Nation reports that by the time police caught up with them on Mombasa road, they had already received part of the money.
According to Standard, the gang that has been masquerading as police officers is behind six past kidnappings in the city.
