Tracer Control received a call from one of our esteemed clients Mr. Robert of Shine Africa Safaris at 2:10am on 12th July 2010 reporting that he had been informed by one of his driver’s that a carjacking of his Toyota Corolla AE110 Saloon had taken place. The driver further explained that he was drugged and abandoned within Ruai area. He requested assistance from a security guard then called his mother who in turn informed Mr. Robert.
This vehicle which operated within Umoja Estate as a cab was hired by two men who wanted to be dropped within Umoja Estate. As the two gentlemen were boarding the cab, one of them drew a pistol and the other one using a rope pulled the driver to the back seat and injected him on the neck which made him drowsy and drove off with the vehicle up to Ruai where he was abandoned after being robbed off Ksh 3000, mobile phone and the vehicle.
