Police officer sprays friend with ten bullets
Police officer has been arrested for allegedly killing his friend at the Gigiri Nyari Police Patrol Base.
Constable Edgar Mokamba was arrested after spraying his friend with 10 bullets.
Police say that the two were socially chewing miraa before the officer turned on his friend who has apparently been visiting him at the base.
“With an AK47 rifle, the officer had been deployed as a station guard moments before he was joined by his friend, and who is apparently a regular at the patrol base located in Nairobi’s Westlands area,” said the DCI.
Police say that a blast of gun shots was then heard hours later at the patrol base.
“The officer in-charge base rushed to the scene only to find the lifeless body of the victim at the driver’s seat of his Toyota Probox,” stated the DCI.
The officer, who had been socially chewing miraa with the deceased the whole time was disarmed and arrested, having sprayed 10 rounds of ammunition in the blast.
