Wednesday, February 1, 2023 –A robbery with violence suspect who has featured constantly in the list of Nairobi’s most wanted thugs, was arrested Monday night by the OCS Huruma Police Station.
This happened after an attack on innocent couple that was headed home from work. The OCS who was on the beat with his men arrived just on time as the thugs were taking off, leading to a dramatic chase that led to the arrest of the thug who has previously been charged in a court twice, for preparation to commit a felony.
The knife-wielding thug had accosted Mohammed Adan and his wife Sameha Mihammud as they headed home around the KAG Church, snatching their mobile phones before taking off on a motorbike; in an incident that literary shook the shacks lined up near the Kariobangi-Huruma flyover.
The OCS leading his ever-ready anti-mugging squad, on a motorbike, went after the thugs head-on with exasperation, in a chase that had one mission to accomplish – catch up with the law-breaker and bring him to book.
“Following the spirited chase, the nduthi ferrying the thug began wobbling from one end of the road to the other
“And when the worried thug turned back, that is when he met with the fiery Huruma station commander,” a statement read in part.
Finally, and as fate would have it, the miscreants’ bike hit a pavement and the duo landed on the tarmac with a heavy thud.
One of the thugs managed to escape by diving into storm water culvert as the jailbird was arrested swiftly by the Huruma crew.
And during interrogation, it was discovered that the suspect, George Ngugi alias Choku, had been arrested in 2011 for preparation to commit a felony, but would later be released on cash bail.
In 2012, he was again arrested for the same offense and being in possession of narcotics. Detectives are yet to establish how he left the cells a week ago.
The suspect is now being processed for arraignment once again.
