Moment gunmen raided petrol station in South B – VIDEO
Gunmen on Tuesday morning stormed the Kobil Petrol station opposite the Mater Hospital in Nairobi and robbed the employees of Sh98,000.
CCTV footage showed the moment the three gunmen raided the police station at around 6.30 am and forced the employees to lie on the ground, before taking money from them.
Makadara OCPD, Nehemiah Langat said employees had recorded statements and that police had started investigations into the incident.
“We are investigating whether the robbery was an inside job because some things do not add up. It is premature to give more information at this point,” Mr Langat said.
He said the employees of the petrol station recorded a statement at the Industrial Area Police Station at 11am, five hours after the robbery.
In the surveillance footage circulated widely on social media, an attendant at the petrol station is seen serving a bodaboda rider who had some luggage on the pillion while a white car is also being refueled.
Meanwhile the three gunmen surround the service bay with the white car being refueled. The motorcycle leaves the pump and two of the gunmen are seen chasing the employees around the car then forces them to lie on the ground.
Two of the gunmen then demand money from the employees and search their pockets as the other man keeps watch.
