Suspects Linked To The Murder Of A 24-Year-Old Man Nabbed
Detectives have arrested four suspects in connection with the murder of 24-year-old Keagan Githua, who was stabbed to death on October 30 by robbers on a motorcycle in Ridgeways, Central Kenya.
"The detectives based at DCI-Starehe mounted a dawn operation that began at a city toilet along River Road, where they pounced on the first suspect before heading to Githurai, where the rest were arrested and the deceased's smartphone recovered," said the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) in a statement.
This is after a detailed analysis of the gang's modus operandi was conducted by detectives based at the Crime Research and Intelligence Bureau, who have since established that the gang operates from the Githurai area, outskirts of Nairobi.
Keagan, who had recently graduated from Strathmore University with a degree in Information Technology, was killed in cold blood by robbers who stabbed him in the chest as they fled after taking away his mobile phone.
DCI has noted that an operation to arrest more gang members is currently ongoing in Githurai and other parts of the city as detectives move quickly to deal with the gangs terrorizing city residents.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
