Nairobi - Police in Kiambu have thwarted a plot by a former RECCE squad officer to attack the RECCE headquarters in Ruiru.

Constable Eric Ngethe Kanyingi, who is alleged to have been planning to attack the RECCE headquarters, resigned in 2014.

The Star adds that the ex-officer who is also suspected to be an Al Shabaab sympathiser has been linked to a series of robberies in Ruiru and Githurai.
