Sh50 million stolen at KCB through underground tunnel [Full Details]

Here is how the thieves broke in

KCB Thika branch in Kiambu County was the center of the well-planned burglary.

Confirming the incident, the bank’s manager divulged that the thieves broke into the strongroom through an underground tunnel.

It is also believed that the robbers used an oxyacetylene flame to drill holes into two safes that had the money. Police have launched an investigation into the incident.

Thika Deputy police commander Bernard Ayoo said: "The robbers must have had an informer working at the bank who guided them into where the safes are kept. So far no suspect has been arrested. Investigations are ongoing."

After the incident KCB sent a message assuring its customers that their funds were safe.

"We wish to assure all our customers that their funds are safe and there is no cause for alarm. Customers seeking to transact can do so at any other KCB branch or access services through our mobile and internet banking platforms," the statement reads.

This comes months after robbery case in in Nairobi’s Ruai Estate where three thugs dug a hole to access Quickmatt Supermarket.

However, the men were killed by police after they were discovered to have been hiding, planning to rob the supermarket.
