Mombasa senior police officer has been robbed of his gun.
The Urban Police Boss was heading to his Kizingo home within Mombasa island before he was accosted by three thugs.
The gang was armed with a firearm and crossed their tuk-tuk in front of the Urban police OCPD George Kingi completely blocking his way.
“The incident happened around 8 pm on Monday night near the Ummu Kulthum mosque in Kizingo,” said Coast regional police commander Manasse Musyoka.
Musyoka said the gang of three robbed the police boss but they did not harm him.
“The pistol was loaded with 15 rounds of ammunition,” He disclosed.
They later vanished in their tuk-tuk towards the Likoni ferry crossing channel.
Musyoka said an operation to arrest the three men is ongoing.
“Police will do everything possible to arrest the suspects since they may use the pistol to terrorise, injure, steal or kill innocent locals,” Said Mr Musyoka.
