One of Nairobi’s Most Wanted Thugs Arrested
A robbery with violence suspect who has featured constantly in the list of Nairobi’s most wanted was arrested Monday night by the OCS Huruma police station after an attack on a couple that was headed home from work.
“The OCS who was on the beat with his men arrived just on time as the thugs were taking off, leading to a dramatic chase that led to the arrest of the thug who has previously been charged in a court of law twice, for preparation to commit a felony,” said the police.
The knife-wielding thug had accosted Mohammed Adan and his wife, Sameha Mihammud, as they headed home, snatching their mobile phones before taking off on a bike.
The OCS leading his anti-mugging squad on a motorbike, went after the thugs with exasperation.
Following the spirited chase, the bike ferrying the thug began wobbling from one end of the road to the other as the thug, who was hanging precariously on the pillion seat, turned back only to be met by the fiery eyes of the Huruma station commander, who was shouting instructions to his police rider as he leaned on his shoulders.
And as fate would have it, the miscreants’ bike hit a pavement, and the duo landed on the tarmac with a heavy thud.
One of the thugs managed to escape by diving into a stormwater culvert as the jailbird was arrested swiftly by the Huruma crew.
During interrogation, it was discovered that the suspect, George Ngugi, had been arrested in 2011 for preparation to commit a felony and was released on cash bail.
In 2012 he was arrested again for the same offence and being in possession of narcotics.
Detectives are yet to establish how he left the cells a week ago and is now back to his old ways of terrorizing innocent members of the public.
The suspect is being processed for arraignment.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
