In statement, the NPS called on everyone to be on high alert and report anything that may seem unusual within their surroundings.

In the wake of the attack at Dusit Hotel and the latest explosion along Latema Road in Nairobi in which two persons suffered slight injuries, it is critical that all citizens must step up their levels of alertness regarding their surroundings and provide information immediately to the Police in case anything out of the ordinary is observed. We further advise that all Hotel operators must obtain full details of their lodgers and restaurant operators must also step up their levels of alertness and security in their establishments,” read part of the stamen.

NPS asked Public Service Vehicle (PSV) operators, mall operators, worship places and public institutions to frisk all persons getting into their premises and report anything unusual.

We also wish to inform the public that whilst we have stepped up alertness on our highways, all Police Commanders have been instructed to apply to a court of law for forfeiture of any vehicle found with illegal immigrants and any form of contraband. Let's all remain alert and be conscious of our surroundings at all times,” read the statement.
