The city of Nakuru is on high alert as local police search for a group of audacious thieves who stormed a radio station and robbed two presenters live on air late Thursday evening.
In a shocking turn of events, the brazen heist was captured on Mwinjoyo Radio’s CCTV system, located in the affluent Milimani estate of Nakuru town. The footage reveals three hooded, masked assailants brandishing firearms and machetes as they barge into the studio while the presenters were broadcasting their show.
The video, which has sent shockwaves through the community, shows the ruffians demanding the presenters to shut down the broadcast, while their cohorts frantically ransack the studio. As the harrowing three-minute video unfolds, the armed men interrogate the presenters about the location of other staff members within the building.
The robbers quickly realized the presenters were live streaming the show on Facebook and proceeded to confiscate their phones and power them off. Reports indicate that the thieves spent approximately 30 minutes pilfering the studio before making off with the presenters’ phones and several electronic devices.
Detectives in Nakuru have launched a thorough investigation into the incident, vowing to bring the culprits to justice. Nakuru East sub-county criminal investigations chief, George Momanyi, confirmed that the investigation is well underway, stating, “The owners of the radio station have recorded statements, and we are relying on their statements and other evidence to hunt down the criminals.”
As the city of Nakuru remains on edge, the public eagerly awaits any new developments in this daring crime.
