Nairobi street bomb was actually motor vehicle spare part, police confirm

  • Police had this morning closed down Moktar Daddah Street, near Ufundi Cooperative in the city centre after an object suspected to be a bomb was found at the entrance of the Technical Institute of Kenya.
  • Police have now confirmed that the object is in fact a motor vehicle spare part.
  • A bomb squad is at the scene.
  • Witnesses say police have retrieved the object.

Following the scare, Central OCPD, Robinson Thuku said that the situation was under control. Police arrived at the scene to control crowds as people attempted to exit the building.

The bomb scare follows a similar event in June last year when a sniffer dog caused panic near Canada’s High Commission office along Limuru Road, Nairobi. The dog had barked at a FedEx van implying that the vehicle was carrying explosives. It was later found to be a false alarm, minutes after the area was evacuated.
