DCI Recover Lethal Firearms, Ammunitions From Kilimani House
Detectives from the DCI Anti-terror police unit (ATPU) have launched a manhunt for a suspect in whose house an armoury stocked with a cache of lethal firearms and hundreds of ammunitions was recovered.
The firearms and ammunition were recovered from Wycliff Okello Lugwili’s Kilimani House after his landlord obtained a court order to gain access into the house due to accumulated Sh. 4,962,990 rent arrears.
The landlord Ballon Wanjala is said to have then hired auctioneers who broke into the house with the intention of recovering the household items.
“Accompanied by Kilimani-based police officers, Hebros auctioneers gained entry into the premises, ready to issue a notification of sale of any worthy items in a bid to recover rent arrears amounting to Sh4, 962, 990,” said the DCI in a statement.
Once inside, a quick search revealed an armoury, stocked with an assortment of weapons of different caliber and hundreds of ammunition.
Detectives have since established that the suspect was a licensed firearm dealer but his license was suspended over 3 years ago.
“The suspect who has since gone into hiding is wanted and has 24 hours to surrender to the nearest DCI offices.”
