A chilling video clip of a daring robbery in Mlango Kubwa area of Mathare, Nairobi is currently doing the rounds on social media.
The undated footage captures a group of three thugs vigorously frisking a man in broad daylight before making away with all his valuables.
In the shocking incident that took place under the glare of public attention, two men first approached the unlucky victim from his front before a third thug joined in from behind, totally blocking his way.
Within the split of a second, the group quickly began ransacking the gentleman shortly before one of them pulled a gun to his head and forced him to move to the side of the street so they could give him another proper body search.
The occupants of a saloon car next to the alley can be seen scampering for safety and hurriedly locking their doors.
Luckily for the guy, they let him walk free just moments later.
Mlango Kubwa area, according to police, is one of the hot spots associated with armed robbers.

The report said some of the common crimes in the area include snatching of car accessories like side mirrors, assault, armed robbery, drug peddling, kidnapping, mugging and break-ins.
