According to footage retrieved from the CCTV cameras inside the shop, one of the thugs entered the premises minutes before 10pm as a guard was closing the door and waited for his accomplice who was outside.
After the other thug enters the shop, they unleash their attack drawing pistols.The guard notices commotion inside the premises and tries to lock the door from the outside. One of the gangsters kicks the door open and chases away the night guard with the help of other colleagues stationed outside.
Three of the gang members get back into the premise and force the attendant to open a grilled entrance giving them access.
The thugs empty the cash box and coins into their pockets and in less than three minutes the gang disappears with Sh350,000, a mobile phone belonging to a client and hundreds worth of airtime.
