Police arrested five people along Thika Road who were ferrying self-propelling grenade launchers on motorcycles.

Initial reports indicate that the five were part of a nine-man gang that was riding on three motorbikes to unknown destination. Their mission is also undisclosed.

The suspects allegedly hurled a grenade at police who were in pursuit but the weapon did not detonate.

The five have been identified as Kevin Opiyo Onyango (24), Maricus Odhiambo (30), Moses Okiri Nyarianga (21), Collins Juma Oduor (19), and Samwel Wanyoike Njeri (19).
