Police were engaged in a dramatic chase after a speeding car whose occupants were initially suspected to be armed robbers.

According to the police, a call from a concerned neighbour who contacted administration police officers stationed at the AP driving school in Ruai informed them of a suspicious vehicle in the neighbourhood, whose occupants had unclear intentions.

The officers immediately sprang into action while in critical infrastructure protection and approached the vehicle cautiously from a distance.

“Suddenly, they saw silhouettes of human beings quickly jump into the vehicle that sped off, leaving behind a thick cloud of dust. Determined to establish the identity of the suspects and their mission, the three officers also went for their all-weather Toyota Land Cruiser van,” DCI said.

With the car now on their radar and visible, police would launch a chase of its own class against the Ford Ranger double cabin along Kangudo road at 3am.

Corporal Opiyo Asha who was the designated driver followed the speeding truck at breakneck speed while shifting gears in quick succession in a bid to catch up with the speeding truck.

Corporal John Okunga on the other hand is said to have blared the vehicle’s siren for the speeding truck to stop, but that appeared to impel the driver to accelerate further.

“The police van was struggling behind the Ford, and the suspects showed no sign of stopping after a five-kilometre chase. But officers of the law aren’t to be easily outwitted. They deflated two of its tires in two precise shots, bringing the dramatic chase to an abrupt end,” DCI said

“No sooner had the cops approached the ill-fated truck than four naked occupants, two men and two ladies, jumped out, lifting their hands up in surrender. ‘Sisi sio wezi,’ pleaded one of the ladies. It was such an anti-climax for the law enforcement officers who had earlier swung into action thinking that it was another action-packed night, of engaging city thugs,” DCI added.

The four namely Vianney Kibet, Silvia Kasiva, Esther Karingari and Denzel Njiru were escorted to Ruai police station, where their safety and security was guaranteed for the rest of the night.

Their vehicle was also towed to the station.
