Three people including a General Service Unit (GSU) officer and two suspected thugs are nursing injuries after they were involved in a fierce fight on Wednesday night in Nairobi’s Embakasi area.
The GSU officer, who is a drill instructor, severely injured the two suspects who attempted to attack him while on his way back to the GSU training camp in Embakasi leaving them with missing teeth and broken jaws.
According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the officer, who was in the company of two ladies, was walking back home from Mihang’o trading centre when he was accosted by the criminals riding on a motorcycle.
“Following the attack, the two women escaped in different directions leaving the officer to square it out with the two thugs on a motorbike,” said the DCI in a statement.
The DCI added: “Unbeknownst to the miscreants, they had just encountered a drill instructor and a stickman par excellence, with a colourful career spanning over 10 years of training several details of paramilitary red berets. The officer launched a barrage of blows and kicks that disfigured one of the thugs’ mandibular anatomy, sending him to the ground rolling in pain.”
According to the DCI, one of the assailants unleashed a long knife and stabbed the officer, forcing him to flee the scene and call for backup.
“When the officer returned minutes later with reinforcement, all they could gather at the scene were two canines and one premolar, a telltale sign that the brawl left one of the attackers with life-threatening injuries. Also collected a few meters away was a black synthetic wig, left behind by one of the fleeing babes,” read the statement.
The injured officer was then rushed to the Ruai hospital for treatment.
Security officers based in Njiru have since launched a manhunt for the suspects who are said to be terrorizing the residents around Embakasi and Njiru.
“Preliminary investigations indicate that the thugs had earlier staged two separate attacks in Embakasi and Njiru, where they robbed innocent members of the public of their mobile phones, cash and other valuables,” DCI noted.
Medical practitioners in the region are therefore urged to report any incidents of male patients seeking treatment with disjointed jawbones and missing teeth.
