Police in Mombasa county have killed the suspected gang leader
Police in Mombasa County have killed the suspected leader of a machete-wielding gang linked to fresh attacks in Likoni Sub-county.
The suspect identified only as Obama was gunned down at Pungu Villa in Shelly Beach at around 2.30pm on Monday.
Obama was killed a day after Mombasa DCI boss Anthony Muriithi issued a stern warning to Shiranga Gang and asked its members to surrender.
“We asked them to surrender because we want peace in Likoni. We cannot allow a few people to terrorise the others,” said Mr Muriithi.
According to the police report, Obama was shot dead in a confrontation with police officers patrolling the area.
