Police in Dagoretti are in pursuit of four gangsters who were caught on CCTV footage robbing a supermarket in the area.

In the footage seen by Nairobi News, a number of customers are busy shopping in the supermarket that is located on Wanyee Road.

Moments later, the customers are seen scampering for safety with others lying down on the ground as the four make their way into the supermarket.

This is after one of the gangsters shot into the air to scare people.

The incident happened on Wednesday at 7:30pm.

Locals say that the four arrived in the area in two motorbikes and were making rounds before they stormed into the supermarket.

“They arrived in two motorbikes and they could be seen moving from point to point. Moments later they stormed into the supermarket,” James Otieno a local said.

In a related incident, on Thursday, two robbers who tried to rob locals in the same area were cornered.

Cases of robbery within the city have been on the rise.

Most of the criminal activities involve robbers riding in motorbikes.

This comes just a week after Nairobi County police boss Philip Ndolo warned robbers against crime saying that their days were numbered.
