The thugs have been slowly making their way back to the Nairobi Central Business District after the December holidays where they were completely decimated from the are by the Rapid Deployment Unit that had been deployed to the streets to make patrols by President William Ruto.

This afternoon, according to the available reliable reports that we have with us from Nairobi Police Boss, the thugs are said to have devised a new way to attack their helpless victims on the streets.

Nairobi Central Police Station OCPD Mr. Raphael Kimilu has warned of a group of youths that are walking in different parts of the city streets between 4AM and 6AM while carrying broken bottles which they use to scare their targets.

The senior police officer said that the youth then drop the bottles unexpectedly to scare the people before they proceed to rob them.

They are said to have attacked someone along the busy Tom Mboya Street in Nairobi CBD and robbed him of 6,000 Kenya shillings just a few days ago using the tactic described above.

The OCPD has reiterated that they are on thee verge of nailing the thugs who have been terrorizing the residents of the city for the past few days.

Let us know your thoughts and opinions on this latest development in the comments section below this article on the return of these robberies.
