Heist: Police Release Equity Bank Staff

Following the botched robbery attempt on Equity Bank’s Ang’awa Street branch on Monday, Kisumu police freed 18 people who had been detained.

Customers and employees of Equity Bank were among them.

Out of the 18 victims, 14 were bank employees and one was a cleaner. Four of them, including a university lecturer, were consumers.

Francis Wanjau, a Kisumu county criminal investigations officer, said they have all recorded statements and will report to the station as needed.

Wanjau stated that their phones will be kept for further examination.

So far, no arrests have been made.

Earlier, Nyanza police chief Karanja Muiruri revealed that criminals inside the bank threw teargas at the cops, delaying their operation to foil a theft.

A quick inspection revealed that the tear gas canisters did not belong to the police, and Muiruri stated that an investigation was underway to determine the origins of the tear gas canisters.
