A female gangster was on Thursday evening shot dead at Nairobi’s Kayole estate after gun drama ensued between a group of gangsters and the police.
Police said that the woman, referred by local residents as Nairobi 'prettiest gangster', was in company of three other female colleagues when they were robbing Kayole residents in broad daylight under gun point.
Police confronted the four after an alert by the public, ordered them to surrender, but the gang declined and decided to engage the police in a gun fight. Two of the suspects were killed during the incident while the other two escaped.
A pistol was seized at the scene of crime with six rounds of ammunition. The bodies of the two were taken to the city mortuary where they await identification and postmortem.
The pretty woman as many Kayole residents have identified her as is said to be part of the gang that has terrorized the residents of the famous estate for years.
For years, the lady has managed to escape from the hands of the police, but her proverbial forty days county came to an end yesterday when she was shot during the fierce firing battle with the police.
According to Kayole OCPD Joseph Gichangi, the gang was hard to track but the police responded swiftly after they were alerted through a WhatsApp group. Gichangi said that police were able to ask for adequate reinforcement before they came head on with the deadly gang that has killed many in Kayole and other estates in Nairobi.
