A senior police officer was Wednesday morning shot dead during a carjacking incident within Kayole in Nairobi.
the slain officer is identified as Superintendent Eston Ndwiga who is based at Police Headquarters.
The report says the officer was driving to his home in Mihang’o when he was attacked by the gunmen who shot at him and fled.
Police say the officer’s body was found inside his vehicle that was next to another abandoned by the thugs after the carjacking went awry.
An investigation has been launched to establish the motive of the killing that occurred at about 3am, less than a kilometre from the slain officer’s home.
