Police are yet to make arrests in connection with the discovery.

It is suspected that the assortment of money-collection materials were used in the stealing of Ksh72 million that was being taken to a Nairobi West ATM on Thursday.

Police in Lang’ata, Nairobi on Thursday launched investigations after armed robbers who were masquerading as security officers robbed a G4S armoured vehicle of Ksh72 million.

The armed robbers had two escort vehicles, and sandwiched the G4S cash transportation vehicle.

G4S personnel were to load the money at the Standard Chartered ATM located in the Nairobi West Shopping Centre when the armed robbers pounced on them, taking away the cash.

A security manager at the G4S, Bernard Apidi, was among those questioned over the robbery.
