Beware: Gangsters posing as police officers in Nairobi
Police in Nairobi are hunting down a gang of armed robbers posing as police officers so as to rob motorists and people leaving banks.
The robbers, operating from a hideout in Dandora, have handcuffs and a police radio and are said to be using different vehicles.
Other sources told Nairobi News that one of the robbers could actually be a rogue police officer.
On Wednesday morning, the gang robbed a man of Sh300, 000 before dumping him in Dagoretti.
Mr Paul Lomosi said that he withdrew the amount from the Cooperative Bank in the city centre and then boarded a matatu to South B shopping centre.
As soon as he alighted, he was confronted by the four men armed with pistols who forced him into a vehicle registration number KBG 619P.
