Five robbery with violence suspects masquerading as matatu operators arrested


Police officers in Buruburu on Tuesday night arrested five robbery with violence suspects purporting to be Public Service Vehicle (PSV) operators.

The five – Samuel Maina Wanyoike, Joseph Wainaina Gitau, Felix Otieno, Dennis Omondi Otieno, and Collins Oduor – were nabbed on a Travelers Sacco matatu by the officers acting on intelligence.

The said vehicle was captured on CCTV footage as it was being pursued by a group of motorcycle riders after the occupants had allegedly lured and violently robbed a man, who later sought the riders’ assistance.

The suspects were arrested before the victim reported to the station and positively identified them and narrated his ordeal.

All the recovered items have been kept as exhibits as suspects are being prepared for arraignment.
