There was drama in Nairobi’s Moi Avenue on Friday afternoon after two thugs attempted to rob renowned actor Ainea Ojiambo of his jewellery.

In CCTV footage seen by Standard Entertainment and Lifestyle, the actor was having a conversation with an unidentified lady outside a shop when two thugs attacked him.

Unknown to them, Ojiambo, was armed and he pulled out his gun, firing in their direction. Unfortunately, he missed and ended up shooting a security guard who was manning Cubes Exhibition Stores and a passerby.

The thugs managed to escape but the guard, who was hit in the eye was left writhing in pain in a pool of blood before he was taken to hospital.
