Watch: Gunmen filmed abducting the brother of Kevin Otieno who was shot 36 times
The notorious gunmen who are credited for shooting Kevin Otieno 36 times in Mihang’o- Utawala on Friday 23, have now been linked to abducting the brother and girlfriend of Mr Otieno.
CCTV footage has emerged of the gunmen tracking down and abducting Mr Otieno’s brother, Alfred Ouma Obinya from his home in the Maji Mazuri area in Mwiki.
Before the abduction, the two gunmen were involved in a dramatic shoot-out hours earlier on Mirema Drive in Kasarani on Thursday 22.
Check out all the details below.
After engaging in the gun battle in broad daylight that saw the death of Mr David Ochieng Odera, 34, the two gunmen sped off in a white Probox.
Detectives told Nairobi News, the two gunmen then changed vehicles and joined four other unidentified men in a white land cruiser.
Their next mission was to get a hold of Mr Otieno’s brother.
They arrived at his house at 3 am on Friday 23 and knocked at the door of Mr Obinya, 29 before they handcuffed him.
His wife exclusively spoke to the Nairobi News saying that the gunmen kept on asking her husband, who has since gone missing, to give them a firearm that was in his possession.
We have CCTV footage which captured the six heavily armed men who were wearing caps, masks and bulletproof vests harassing Mr Obinya at his residence.

The six then proceeded to the house of Ms Evelyn Nduku who was a girlfriend to Mr Kevin Otieno and also picked her up. Ms Nduku just like Mr Obinya has never been seen since.
They arrived at Ms Nduku’s house a few minutes before noon on Friday and left with her after they ransacked her house.
A man who witnessed what transpired said that the gunmen did not ask for directions to her house but just proceeded to the fifth floor and left with her.
“The gunmen appeared to be searching for something that they did not manage to get from her house. They then covered her face, bundled her inside the land cruiser and left,” said the man who spoke in confidence due to the sensitivity of the matter.
The gunmen then proceeded to Mihang’o in Utawala where they shot Mr Otieno in broad daylight after cornering him.
People who were near the scene of the crime said that the gunmen then demanded that they hand over their mobile phones which they destroyed by shooting several times.
Kayole Sub County Police Commander Mr Paul Wambugu confirmed that indeed the incident happened on Friday.
“Investigations are ongoing to establish the motive behind it and to apprehend the perpetrators,” he said.
