Police have described the suspect as a dangerous criminal saying the gun he was pictured with is normally used by the police and not ordinary citizens.
The suspect was booked at Kianyaga police station and will be held in the cell for 10 days after police sought the orders from the court pending investigations.
“We need time to know how he obtained the powerful gun and where the gun is,” said the police, adding that they will question him further.
