A middle-aged man has surrendered to the police claiming that he is the armed man who raided Tuskys supermarket last week. Central DCIO Zack Nangulu says officers has escorted him to his residence in Mathare to conduct a search.

Watch the robbery incident:

According to the CCTV footage of the incident, the lone gunman raided a supermarket in Nairobi’s Central Business District on Wednesday night last week and made away with an unknown amount of money.

Police had been looking for the man, who was shown casually walking toward one of the attendants holding the cash in what appears to be a gunny bag and with little effort, manages to wrest the loot from his hands.

The cashier had ostensibly collected the hourly sales from various tellers inside the Tuskys Imara Supermarket on Moi Avenue in Nairobi’s Central Business District.

The cashier initially attempted to hold on to the gunny bag containing the cash but he lets go of it when the gangster fires once in the air.

The gunshot sends supermarket staff and shoppers scampering for safety as the gangster casually strolls out with his loot.
