A gang of robbers who struck in Kenya, dug a tunnel into Itoleka Financial Services Association (FSA) Bank in Kitui, where they stole KSh 1.5 million (N5.1m).

The robbers who dug a tunnel into the bank in Kenya and stole KSh 1.5 million, pulled off a Hollywood heist as it was only discovered on the morning of Sunday, June 16. According to authorities, it may have taken the gang about two days to create the tunnel. Confirming the incident, Kitui East Deputy OCPD Edward Legei said the facility’s night guard discovered the hole and then informed the police. It was further learnt that the guard was taken in for interrogation.

“He told our officers that as he was patrolling the bank, he saw a tunnel and suspected something could me a miss and reported to us. Money safe and lockers were broken. We recovered equipment used to dig the tunnel,” said Ligei.

A similar incident occurred in 2017, when robbers dug tunnel to a KCB Bank in Thika where they stole at least KSh 50 million. The Kitui incident comes hardly two months after the Barclays Bank heist where a well coordinated gang made away with over KSh 11 million from four ATMs. The police however said they are working tirelessly to arrest the suspects.

  2. Merely wanna comment on few general things, The website pattern is perfect, the content is real good. “The enemy is anybody who’s going to get you killed, no matter which side he’s on.” by Joseph Heller.

  3. Amazing blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any ideas? Many thanks!

  4. One important thing is that when you’re searching for a student loan you may find that you will want a co-signer. There are many circumstances where this is true because you may find that you do not employ a past credit standing so the lender will require that you have someone cosign the financial loan for you. Interesting post.

  5. Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?
