Police recovered two M16 assault rifles and a Ceska pistol in a house suspected to be a torture chamber in Lavington, Nairobi.

The house, seemingly abandoned recently, had walls and curtains splattered with blood.

The origin of the assault rifles serial numbers could not be established and they were taken to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations for ballistic examination.

Also taken for examination were the mini Ceska serial number ET 1281807, an empty magazine and 33 rounds of ammunition.


Police officers acting on a tip off raided house C7 at Daykio Heights apartments along Ole Dume Road on Saturday night.

On Wednesday a caretaker at the apartments said that the house had been rented by a man and a woman in their mid-thirties who were later joined by four other men.

“They looked jovial but never interacted with other people much,” he said.

Dagoreti criminal investigation chief Joseph Ondoro on Wednesday said detectives found a lease agreement and forwarded the details to the Registrar of Persons for possible identification of the tenant.
