Two thugs who have been terrorizing Mombasa residents were on Tuesday morning shot dead by police.

Urban OCPD Eliud Monari has said that the two are part of gang terrorizing local residents.

"We recovered pangas, a toy pistol and other items," Urban OCPD Eliud Monari said, confirming the incidence.

During routine patrols, the two with an age bracket of 27-35 were smoked out of their hideout in Ferry at SECCO area a few meters from the crossing channel which is used by more than 300,000 commuters daily.

Monari said one suspect escaped during the raid. Likoni is a crime hotspot and many residents are constantly on the exodus, looking for safer residential houses in the island and other parts of Mombasa.
