Detectives drawn from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations Sunday nabbed one of Mombasa’s high-profile gang members behind a string of robberies in the coastal city.

The suspect who has since been identified as 23-year-old Ali Abdalla Abdillatif aka Bliza Bliza is said to have escaped police dragnets in several swoops and had come to Nairobi.

However, Abdalla’s stint at the city would be cut short after a member of the public blew off his cover, setting up for a swift arrest.

Police ready for any eventuality would troop to Nairobi’s business hub- Eastleigh from where they managed to catch up with the Mombasa-born robbery suspect in the company of another suspect.

At the time of arrest on Eastleigh’s bustling 11th street, he was in the company of a 25-year-old man identified as Daniel Muigai Nganga.

Police have since detained the two awaiting trial in the Court of Law.
