In what many terms as money heist, five thugs are currently in a hide-out after a bank robbery in one of Prime Bank branches.

The robbery incident took place at the heart of Nakuru County when residents were busy with the political rally that was underway on the County’s Show Ground.

According to police, the gang stormed the Prime Bank branch in Westside Mall, Nakuru town fleeing with over Kshs. 2.3 million Cash.

In a report by the bank manager, the five robbers raided the banking hall armed with knives, panga, a homemade gun, and a hammer.

The gang reportedly took hostage 9 staff members and ransacked the offices before getting away with the money which was at the tellers’ drawers.

The police who got at the scene moments later recovered a hammer, a homemade gun, a 1,000 shillings note, and a mobile phone

A similar incident happened to Prime Bank, Mombasa in January 2021.

The police are currently in pursuit of the thugs linked to the robbery who have since gone into hiding.
