Detectives on Thursday night shot dead three robbery with violence suspects at Kwa Mbao area in Kariobangi, Nairobi county. 

According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the suspects were killed after opening fire on detectives.

During the raid, two pistols, unregistered motorbike, rounds of ammunition, spent cartridges were recovered

“Two pistols, rounds of ammunition, spent cartridges and an unregistered motorcycle were recovered after a shootout that saw one suspect escape,” said DCI. 

The gang has been linked to a number of robberies in Eastlands where they target M-Pesa and electronics shops.

The four have been captured on camera committing various robberies in past.


Two months ago, a University student lost his life in the hands of the gangsters within Buruburu.

Brenda Awuor Ouma, 23, a student at KCA University was shot by unknown thugs in Buruburu, leading to her death while undergoing treatment.

Awuor, who was pursuing a Bachelor of Business Administration with IT and was set to graduate this month, was assisting her elder sister Judy Ouma, to run her M-Pesa shop in Buruburu.

In another incident, the four are believed to have robbed valuables from customers and later ransacked a business premise where they carted away electronic gadgets.

Search for the suspect who escaped continues.
