An unknown number of thugs is said to have broken into Habib bank along Koinange street yesterday and made away with an unknown amount of Money. Nairobi County Police boss, Joseph Oletito, confirmed the incident stating that police officers had moved in to analyse the crime scene.

Mr. Oletito further stated that the thugs tampered with the CCTV footage and the alarm system raising suspicions that it could be an inside job. The officers manning the surroundings said they did not even see any lights from outside which means the thugs really knew what they were doing and were set to make sure the mission is a success.

The thugs accessed the branch and removed five containers of 50-real notes, with an estimated value of Sh50 million. They disabled the bank’s internal alarms and sensors.
