- Police officer robbed as crime wave hits Nairobi
NAIROBI; KENYA: A police officer was Saturday morning robbed of his gun in yet another attack on police in Nairobi's Dandora area. The administration policeman from Canaan AP post was attacked at about 6 am and robbed of his AK 47 rifle with 30 bullets by men who had trailed him for long and no recovery has been made. Police say he was slightly wounded in the attack and a hunt on the men is on-going.
Nairobi County commander Benson Kibui says no arrest or recovery has been made so far. The attack comes a day after two policewomen were on Thursday night injured and robbed of their guns in an attack by suspected thugs in Nairobi's Shauri Moyo area.
The officers were on patrol in Majengo slums when they were attacked and stabbed by the gang of about five. The attack took place at about 8pm and the victims were ambushed from behind.
