Police are looking for a gang that raided an Mpesa shop in Ngara area, Nairobi and killed a night guard before stealing an unknown amount of money.
The guard was strangled and his body was discovered at the scene long after the gang had escaped in the Saturday night incident.
Police say the shop has been busy and the gang may have been monitoring its operations before striking.
They first tied the victim before strangling him according to an incident report seen by Shahidi News.
The body of the victim was moved to the mortuary as investigators look for the killers.
No arrest has been made so far. An autopsy is expected later in the week.
Starehe police boss Alice Kimeli said a team of investigators is pursuing the incident.
