Fake policeman shot dead while on a robbing spree

A police imposter was shot dead early Thursday after he was caught robbing members of the public in Shauri Moyo, Nairobi.

The fake policeman, dressed in a jungle green police sweater, police boots and a handcuff porch was gunned down by police officers who were on patrol at 5.30am.

Buruburu OCPD, Geoffrey Maiyek said police officers on patrol were alerted by members of the public, about a gang of three which was robbing members of the public in Majengo Slums.

“They responded and came into contact with the three and upon challenging them, they fired at the officers who responded and fatally injured one unknown male adult,” Mr Maiyek said.

Police, he said, seized a homemade pistol, pocket phone, a phone, a tablet and an imitation of Administration Police Service certificate.
