Drama as police storm burial of ‘prettiest thug’, arrest three men

Police officers on Thursday raided the home of slain suspected gangster Claire Njoki Kibia an hour after her burial and arrested three men.

According to the family, the officers ordered the three men to lie down and took them away in different vehicles.

One police officer, wearing a hoodie, said those arrested are criminals from Kayole in Nairobi, where the 17-year-old was shot dead last week.


The media has christened Claire Nairobi’s ‘prettiest thug’ due to her stunning looks.

Her burial in Kambirwa village in Murang’a county was only attended by a few friends and family members.

“Most of her friends were scared that they would be arrested if they showed up for the burial. They only visited the City Mortuary (in Nairobi) in the morning,” said a friend.

The presence of plain clothes police officers only helped to heighten tension during the sombre ceremony.
