The Government has asked Kenyans to stop sharing clips of the 14 Riverside Drive attack that happened on Tuesday afternoon.
In a Twitter post, State House warned that sharing videos of the attacks and messages would aid the attackers in their mission.
The Inspector-General Joseph Boinett said that a group of assailants attacked the dusitD2 complex at 3pm on the Riverside Drive.
IG Boinnet urged Kenyans to be patient and follow instructions of the security team in the area.
Boinnet said that authorities believe that many armed criminals who perpetrated the attack are still in the dusitD2 Hotel complex.
“We are aware that armed criminals are holding up in the hotel and specialist forces are now currently flushing them out,” said Boinnet.
