Nairobi's most wanted criminal known as Brayo has finally been arrested after years of running battle with police officers.
Brayo, who is linked to the killing of several police officers and civilians in Nairobi was reportedly arrested on Wednesday night by renowned crime buster Ahmed Rashid.
He is being detained at the Pangani police station awaiting court arraignment. Brayo was placed in police's most wanted list after masterminding a series of robberies and killing of police officers in the city.
Police believe he is the man behind the killing of Corporal Martin Korir, who was shot dead during a highway robbery on a Thika-bound Neo Kenya bus on Thika Superhighway on April 28th.
During the incident, gangsters made away with Corporal Korir's firearm and other valuables belonging to passengers in the bus.
The gun was recovered on May 12th after Flying Squad officers ambushed and gunned down four criminals in Nairobi's Dandora Phase 2 area.
Brayo is also linked to the shooting of Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu’s driver on October 24th, last year. The shooting happened in Hurlingham Estate near Marsabit Plaza.
The driver survived the attack but attackers made away with his gun. The bodyguard had just dropped off Ms Mwilu at her Karen home when he was attacked.
Three suspects, namely James Wachira, Eric Njuguna and Everyncy Khalifwa, were arrested and arraigned before Kibera Chief Magistrate on December 5th in connection to the attack.
They denied the charges and were released on Sh1 million bond each with sureties of the same amount.
