Thika police shoot dead thug in robbery incident

Police in Thika have shot dead one thug who was part of a gang that have been robbing pedestrians of their valuables, along the Railway-Kiang'ombe Road .

Armed with a firearm and crude weapons, the thugs accosted two young men believed to be students at a Thika-based university at around 9pm on Wednesday night as they were on their way to buy avocados.

The thugs ordered them to surrender all their valuables including mobile phones, belts, shoes and clothes. They were then ordered to surrender their M-PESA PIN numbers at gun point, prompting one of them to let out loud piercing shrieks of despair.
Luckily, two cops on foot patrol heard the call of distress and rushed to the aid of the victims. What followed was a fierce exchange of fire between the cops on a mission to rescue the students and the thugs who were fighting to escape the wrath of the law enforcement officers.
When the guns went silent, one thug lay lifeless in a pool of blood as his accomplices leapt to a getaway motorbike heavily wounded.
A firearm with two rounds of ammunition and a machete were recovered from the slain thug.
Meanwhile, a manhunt for the rest of the gang members is currently ongoing.
