Some thugs were killed after engaging the police in a shootout along Mombasa Road on Thursday morning. Police found that the thugs used Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko bodyguard’s gun in the gun battle.
Authorities say one of the Ceska pistols that were retrieved from the four gangsters belonged to Bakari Tsuma, who was murdered in an attack in Kasarani estate four months ago.
Mr Tsuma was killed in March as he was returning home after escorting the Senator on one of the politician’s trips. After murdering the bodyguard, the attackers took his gun away.
Officers with knowledge of the incident alleged that police have identified the two gunmen who had attacked the bodyguard, and they dead now, having been shot and killed during the gun battle on Thursday.
However, they are yet to track down the sources of the second pistol.
According to Kikuyu DCI boss Aden Ahmed, the suspects, have been on police “wanted” list for countless criminal cases around Thogoto area, where they hailed from.
