Deadly Shootout Leads To Lose Of 1.1 Million After Wealthy Businessman Involved In Dramatic Event

A popular Nairobi businessman was involved in a shoot out after 2 thugs in a motorbike ambushed him before firing their guns. The two criminals are said to have been riding a motorbike which was used as a getaway means after laying ambush outside a banking institution within the Nairobi CBD.

According to The Star digital media platform, the wealthy victim is said to have withdrawn a total sum of 1.1 million which was in a brown envelope before boarding a motorbike taxi to where he had parked his car. However, he was unknowingly being trailed by the duo who were armed with a pistol before they intercepted him at an isolated spot and forcibly snatched the envelope carrying the money.

In the scuffle, eye witnesses indicated that the victim resisted and started shouting for help which attracted members of the public to try and come to his aid. This seems to have infuriated the criminals who fired twice in the air before turning the gun on their victim and shot him twice in his abdomen. He was later rushed for medical attention.
