Police are looking for a woman who drugged a Nairobi businessman before stealing his firearm and Sh200,000 at his residence in Gigiri on Saturday night.

Police said the businessman, who is a civilian firearm holder and a resident of Thigiri Road in New Muthaiga, met the woman at a restaurant and they agreed to go to the man’s residence.

They drove in two cars from the town centre to the house. The woman was driving a grey Toyota Rav 4 whose registration number the victim says he did not see.


While in the house, they took some drinks before they retired to bed. The man woke up the following day at 11am and found that the woman had left.

He checked the house and realized that his Glock pistol serial number THX118 loaded with 10 rounds of ammunition, Sh200, 000 and a Samsung Duo cellphone were all missing.

Police visited the scene and launched investigations. They have also circulated the details of the stolen firearm across the country.

Gigiri OCPD Vitalis Otieno said the businessman would be taken to court if investigations show that he was negligent.
