“Detectives based in Juja, Kiambu County, are hunting down 3 suspects who killed a 23-year-old university student in cold blood last night, before escaping with his phone and other valuables.

Joel Juma, a fourth year Industrial Chemistry student at the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT), was stabbed two times on the chest by one of the thugs before they fled to darkness in the 2am incident.

According to Juma’s girlfriend who is a Law student at the Mt Kenya University, Parklands Campus, she had escorted her boyfriend to get some revision materials from his classmates a few blocks away, when the blood thirst gang accosted them.” Said DCI

According to the police, two thugs descended on Juma with kicks and blows as another one harassed the girlfriend who luckily had no valuables with her.

Reports confirmed that the thugs are part of a criminal gang terrorizing residents of Kayole and Dandora as operations are underway to end their activities.

“Two of them descended on Juma with blows and kicks before stabbing him twice on the left side of his chest, leaving him lying on the ground in a pool of blood. The third assailant manhandled the lady who hadn’t carried any valuable and luckily, left her unscathed.

Local guards who heard the commotion rushed to the scene and together with the heavily shaken girlfriend, helped Juma to a local dispensary where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Detectives have since established that pockets of a notorious gang, which escaped the ongoing operation to rid Kayole and Dandora of criminals, has found a safe haven in Gachororo, where they are regrouping with the aim of establishing a fiefdom.

Consequently, a major undercover operation to completely annihilate the gang has been launched in the area.” Said DCI
