A suspected thug was last night shot dead in Nairobi’s Umoja area by police officers.
The suspect was in the company of two other thugs who managed to escape the police drug net.
According to the police the three are members of a gang that has been terrorizing residents in Umoja, K South and Mwiki areas.
Police say that the thugs have been using a motorbike and gun to commit their criminal acts.
Mwiki area in Kasarani has reportedly turned into a hot spot for suspected thugs.
Residents have raised an alarm over a marauding gang of thugs terrorizing the residents.
Last week alone two people lost their lives in the hands of the suspected thugs.
One man was stabbed to death while the other one was shot dead.
