Two Gunmen on Tuesday afternoon reportedly attacked a secondary school in Murang'a County and forced the principal to give them money. The two thugs who were using a personal car were in possession of pistols. They are suspected to have trailed Igikiro Boy's High School principal and his bursar from Kenol town where they had just withdrawn Ksh.250,000 from the school account.[Photo Courtesy]
While confirming the incident, Murang'a South Sub-county police commander Alexander Shikondi said that the thugs had followed the principal past 1pm and one of them followed the school principal to his office.
The gangster demanded to be shown the cash office and the money that had been withdrawn. The other gangster who was outside the administration block broke into the principal's vehicle and took a laptop and a tablet. The breaking of the car attracted the attention of other staff and students. The thug panicked and alerted his colleague to abort the mission.
They boarded their vehicle and sped without the cash. Police were alerted and arrived and investigations have commenced. Mr. Shikondi said that officers from the DCI are tracking the suspects. Additionally, witnesses have also recorded statements in connection with the incident. CCTV footages inside the school have been retrieved to help detectives with investigations.
