Statement by National Police Service following the Latema Road IED attack this evening.
In the wake of the attack at Dusit Hotel and the latest explosion along Latema Road in Nairobi in which two persons suffered slight injuries, it is critical that all citizens must step up their levels of alertness regarding their surroundings and provide information immediately to the Police in case anything out of the ordinary is observed.
We further advise that all Hotel operators must obtain full details of their lodgers and restaurant operators must also step up their levels of alertness and security in their establishments.
We also advise PSV operators to monitor the behaviour of their passengers and be wary of persons who may board with luggage and thereafter attempt to alight without the baggage.
We are also calling on shopping mall operators as well as ushers at all houses of worship,educational institutions, and all other public places to frisk all persons entering their premises and promptly notify the Police should they detect anything unusual for action.
We also wish to inform the public that whilst we have stepped up alertness on our highways, all Police Commanders have been instructed to apply to a court of law for forfeiture of any vehicle found with illegal immigrants and any form of contraband.
Let’s all remain alert and be conscious of our surroundings at all times.
God bless Kenya.
