Detectives in Juja, Kiambu County, are on the lookout for three suspects who murdered a 23-year-old university student in cold blood last night before fleeing with his cellphone and other valuables.
One of the thugs stabbed Joel Juma, a fourth-year Industrial Chemistry student at the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT), twice in the chest before fleeing into the darkness at 2 a.m.
Juma’s girlfriend, a law student at Mt Kenya University’s Parklands Campus, said she had escorted her boyfriend to get some revision materials from his classmates a few blocks away when they were accosted by the bloodthirsty gang.
The third assailant manhandled the lady who hadn’t carried any valuable and luckily, left her unscathed.
Local guards who heard the commotion rushed to the scene and together with the heavily shaken girlfriend, helped Juma to a local dispensary where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
Detectives have since established that pockets of a notorious gang, which escaped the ongoing operation to rid Kayole and Dandora of criminals, has found a safe haven in Gachororo, where they are regrouping with the aim of establishing a fiefdom.
Consequently, a major undercover operation to completely annihilate the gang has been launched in the area. Detectives from the Crime Research & Intelligence Bureau (CRIB) and the Special Service Unit (SSU) have been dispatched conduct the operation.
