Detectives investigating the cause of the night fire at Malik Heights that consumed 69 luxury vehicles among other things have identified the suspected arsonist.
Police have revealed they are looking for the man who has been linked to the incident that also saw property destroyed along Ngong Road, Nairobi.
The arsonist Abdirizak Yusuf Adow has been placed at the scene of the incident after he was captured on CCTV footage near and within Malik Heights building.
He is seen lighting the flame before dashing to the stairs.
Abdirizak is said to be a former broker at the business and was captured walking into the compound carrying a jerican believed to have contained fuel.
He then went to the parking area where he sprinkled the chemical and lit a fire before he ran away using the staircase.
