Kenya police orders probe into 'extrajudicial killing of two suspects'

NAIROBI (Xinhua) -- Kenyan police chief has ordered thorough investigations into the killing of two suspected gang members allegedly by police officers in Eastleigh residential estate in Nairobi.

Joseph Boinett, the Inspector General of Police and Independent Policing and Oversight Authority (IPOA) said separately those behind the killings which has gone viral must be identified and arrested.

"IPOA has dispatched its Rapid Response Unit to investigate the incident with a view of establishing circumstances of the shooting.

"If there is culpability ensuring that responsible face the full force of the law," said the police watchdog.

IPOA said after concluding the investigations, recommendations will be taken to the office of the director of public prosecutions.

The move comes a day after video capturing armed officers shooting dead a young suspect who had surrendered as a crowd watched drew mixed reactions online.

Nairobi police commander Japheth Koome said the gang was part of the members of the "Superpower Gang" that operates in Eastleigh terrorizing locals for money.

Koome said the gang has been behind a series of robbery incidents in the area, adding that police have information showing they were behind the killing of three people, including a police officer and physically challenged man in Kayole.

Koome was keen to note that he stood by his officers who were behind the incident, further warning gangsters to either abandon their criminal activities or get killed.
