The Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnett has revealed how terrorists co-ordinated three well planned attacks on Dusit D2 Hotel along 14 Riverside Drive in Nairobi.
According to Boinnett, the attacks started with a robbery at the I & M bank.
“We can now confirm that this criminal activity commenced at about 3pm in a coordinated version that began with an attack at I&M Bank with an explosion that targeted 3 vehicles in the parking lot and suicide explosion in the foyer of dusit hotel.”
The IG has however revealed that the police reacted swiftly and the situation is almost under control.
“Owing to the swift and targeted response by our security agencies, the situation has been largely contained and 6 out of the 7 floors of the hotel building have been secured.”
The IG is however not happy with some people spreading false images online about the attack.
“We want to caution the public that sympathizers of these criminals have taken to the internet using old and quite disturbing images all of which have nothing to do with today’s incident in an attempt to spread fear and despondency among the public.”
