Police on Saturday morning gunned down four suspected robbers in former Cabinet Minister Musikari Kombo’s Loresho home and recovered two pistol and ten rounds of ammunition.

Gigiri OCPD Vitalis Otieno said the four had attempted to break into the Kenya Petroleum Refineries Board chairman’s house when a neighbour raised the alarm.

“They had parked a car outside the compound and three of the thugs were already in the compound trying to break into the house” Mr Otieno said.

He said police arrived at the house and one of the thugs, who was keeping watch, started shooting at the officers.

“The officers shot back and managed to fatally injure him and the other one who was in the car. On hearing the gunshots from outside, the thugs who were in the compound tried to escape as they fired using the homemade gun” he said.

Police are holding the car used by the robbers.
