In the Rui district of Nairobi, armed men stormed a private hospital and stole money and cellphones from patients.
Police were notified by security at Roy Family Hospital that a gang of two motorcyclists entered the hospital early on Monday, 10 April.
The guards claimed they were armed with firearms when the group arrived and wanted cash and electronics.
A shooter fired a single shot into the ground to signal their presence, causing the staff and patients present to surrender and lie down.
Then one of the divorcees went to take four cell phones and an unknown amount of cash from the patients in the room.
After the mission, the gang escaped from the facility, jumped onto a waiting motorcycle, and escaped.
No injuries were reported during the drama, according to the police, and no arrests were made.
A spent 9mm cartridge was found at the scene by the detective team.
According to the police, when the gang chose to raid the hospital, they may have been involved in a nocturnal robbery.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, a team of investigators went to the facility to examine the CCTV footage that recorded their movements there as part of the investigation into the crash.
Adamson Bunge, Nairobi’s police chief, said they are cooperating with their counterparts in Kiambu to catch the perpetrators.
The private hospital in the area is liked and beneficial to many as it is believed to be affordable and efficiently run.
