Facebook has shut down the Nairobi Crime Free Group that is being run by undercover cop Hessy Wa Dandora.
The page was shut down on Wednesday morning, after an expose by the BBC.
Hessy has been using the group to warn criminals against crimes. Those who do not adhere to his warnings are later shot dead and their pictures posted on the group.
Hessy Wa Dandora’s colleague an undercover cop by the name Maliza Crime Mtaani protested the move by Facebook saying the move will not stop criminals from dying.
“Closing the group will not protect criminals from dying,” he stated.
A number of activists in Kenya have been laying protests against the admins of the page saying their actions are violations to human rights.
The activists efforts to have the police take action against Hessy have been in vain.
Former Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet last year disowned Hessy saying he is not one of them.
