Three armed thugs were on Wednesday morning shot dead by police in Eastleigh Estate, Nairobi.

The gun and knife wielding robbers were gunned down after robbing an MPesa shop in the area. Shockingly, they were part of a gang that had on Tuesday night attempted to rob an Mpesa agent in Eastleigh opposite the Grand Royal Hotel.

The thugs had terrorised Kayole residents and businesses and had injured a police officer.

Police recovered two guns and knives from the thugs.
