AP officer shoots boda boda rider dead at Mama Lucy Hospital

An Administration Police officer manning the gate of Mama Lucy Hospital in Nairobi on Tuesday shot and killed a boda boda rider following a confrontation.

The rider, 24-year-old Daniel Mburu, was reportedly taking an injured child from Korokocho to the facility for treatment when a disagreement ensued between him and the officer.

According to witnesses who spoke to Citizen Digital, Mburu allegedly rode in and parked his motorcycle at the wrong spot, thereby rubbing the officer the wrong way.

The act led to a confrontation which, as the witnesses stated, escalated and the officer drew out his weapon and fired at the boda boda operator.

The yet-to-be identified officer then fled the scene as civilians who witnessed the incident started charging towards him baying for his blood.

Nairobi police boss Phillip Ndolo was yet to comment on the incident as at the time of publishing.
