She said when the police arrived at the scene, they found that the police officer has been killed by the suspected robbers, who also made away with the constable’s AK 47 rifle.

“There is one private security officer who was also stabbed with multiple machete wounds on his body but he is actually responding to treatment at the Police hospital,” ASP Tenge added.

She further called on members of the public to volunteer information that could lead to the arrest of the suspects.

ASP Tenge said that “once the person [suspected robbers] has been able to possess an arm, that is a serious thing to talk about and a threat to all of us in the community.”
