North Korean man arrested for misuse of firearm in Kilimani


A North Korean has been arrested in Kilimani for misuse of firearm.

Mr Hee Jae Lyee, a licenced firearm holder certificate number 7234, is said to have threatened to shoot Mr Enock Opara Makokha for no reason, according to the police.

His Glock pistol loaded with 13 rounds of ammunition was confiscated and the suspect expected to be charged in court Tuesday morning.

Police records indicate that there has been an increase in misuse of firearms among civilian holders.

Last week, two licensed firearm holders engaged in a confrontation involving love triangle at Klub House (K1) Club in Parklands.

A Nairobi businessman assaulted his colleague using his pistol and fired seven rounds in the air.

Police day he was fighting over his estranged girlfriend.

However, police are yet to disarm Mr Chris Obure.
