Police on Sunday gunned down two suspected gangsters believed to be members of the same gang as slain gangster, Claire Njoki Mwaniki, famously known as “Clea Adi Vybz.”
One of the suspects, known by her alias- “Marsha Minaj”, is said to have been the best friend of the late Claire Njoki.
“Minaj” was shot dead together with a male suspect believed to be her boyfriend on Sunday afternoon at a house in Migingo, in Patanisho area.
The suspects were gunned down following a tip-off from members of the public on the whereabouts of the wanted criminals.
Confirming the shooting, Nairobi County Police Commander Japheth Koome said when the police went to the house they were in, they found the two and attempted to arrest them but they engaged them in a shoot out.
“The officers were forced to return fire and they managed to fatally injure the two and recovered a pistol, five rounds of ammunition and three spent cartridges from the suspects,” Mr Koome said.
After the shooting, a mysterious police officer who identifies himself as “Hessy wa Kayole” on Facebook, posted gory pictures of the killed suspects on the Facebook group called Kayole Crime Free.
Hessy had previously warned the female suspect through the same platform, that she would be killed if she did not reform from a life of crime.
