Dramatic Scene as Man Robbed of Sh 1.1 Million Moments After Withdrawing.

A gang of robbers waylaid a man moments after he withdrew money from a bank in the city and snatched the cash on Wednesday afternoon.

The gang riding on a motorcycle shot the man before robbing him of Sh1.1 million in a dramatic incident.

According to preliminary reports, the man had just withdrawn Sh1.1 million from Family Bank, Donholm branch and while on the road, he was later ambushed at the Cabanas bus termius when the incident occurred.

Confirming the incident, Embakasi sub-county Police Commander John Nyamu said “We want to know how they knew he went for the money. The gang is on the run but we will get them,”.

This prompted a struggle before the victim was shot in the groin as the gang grabbed the money.

It is alleged that the victim boarded a matatu to Taj Mall where he alighted and took a boda boda to Cabanas to do some transaction near Cabanas stage along Mombasa road,”

Nyamu further stated "They demanded the bag containing the cash but he resisted, prompting the shooting. We are looking for the rider who dropped him at the scene for interrogation,"

The victim is said to have initially resisted attempts by the gunmen to rob him of his money but his efforts proved futile.

Detectives have now launched a manhunt for the gunmen as well as a pursuit for the bodaboda operator who dropped him off at Cabanas stage.
