Two prison officers clobbered by boda boda riders in Ruiru
Police in Ruiru, Kiambu County, are presently investigating an incident where two prison officers were reportedly clobbered by boda boda riders near Falcon bar on the Eastern Bypass.
According to a police report seen by Citizen Digital, the officers have since been identified as Joseph Maina Muriithi and George Gichoni Njuguna of the Industrial Area Remand Prison.
The two had reportedly arrested and handcuffed a suspect who later managed to get away; the suspect went on and informed the bodaboda riders.
