Police have arrested a military man who shot at a boda boda rider who had dropped his daughter at Syokimau in Machakos County
According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), Wycliffe Atendo, an online nduthi operator in Nairobi had received a request from a client to drop her at White house estate, in Syokimau.
The rider picked the 21-year-old lady outside a pharmacy along Kimathi Street and set off for the 20-kilometer journey.
“The duo arrived at the agreed address and as the woman was about to pay him, a man quickly emerged from the gate and gave her a beating like a rented mule, before showing her into the compound. “ DCI said
“As the nduthi man pondered his next move, the enraged man whipped out a firearm and fired at him instead, making him flee the scene for dear life”.
The rider,who cheated death by a whisker, reported the incident at Syokimau police station and the officers responded swiftly.
Police have since established that the man was a military doctor who was armed with a glock pistol and 42 rounds of 9mm calibre.
The military man was arrested and handed over to military police for further action, in accordance with military discipline.
