A 57-year-old Kabete Anglican Church pastor was fortunate to be alive after being rescued from an armed group that kidnapped him last night. At 8 p.m. Four armed men kidnapped clergyman John Dinguri Chege as he rode home in his white Nissan Advan. The gangsters took possession of the car and drove it to Kiamumbi in Kiambu district. As officers learned of the abduction, they quickly swung into action and chased the perpetrators, whilst another team set up an ambush along Kamiti Lane. The vehicle was eventually intercepted some meters past Jacaranda in a well-executed attempt to save the man of the cloth from the jaws of the bloodthirsty criminals.
The criminals were told to surrender, but they refused, resulting in a shootout in which two of the thugs were killed on the spot. Two other criminals managed to flee the scene in the middle of the night with bad bullet wounds, leaving the shaken Church Minister in the hands of our good police officers. The suspects who were shot were found in possession of a Smith and Wesson gun loaded with two 9mm bullets and a dagger. Meanwhile, a manhunt for the two missing criminals was started immediately. The DCI urged the public to share it anonymously if they had any details about the criminal's whereabouts.
