Police in Nairobi have recovered guns and ammunition from an office belonging to a technology company in Kilimani.
According to reports, police officers were providing security for auctioneers who had raided the office when they made the shocking discovery.
The officers were assigned to offer security services to Ballon Wanjala of Hebros auctioneers who were given a go-ahead to break into Ken Lugwili’s office over KSh 4.9 million rent arrears.
The auctioneers broke into the office and while ransacking the place, they stumbled upon the armoury in one of the rooms.
“The said office was broken into by auctioneers and in one of the rooms was discovered to be having a standard armory where a number of firearms, ammunition and assortment of firearms were recovered,” a police report stated.
The police say some of the guns recovered from the office are not allowed to be in possession of civilians.
Recovered ammunitions include seven escort magnum shotguns, one benelli shotgun, five guatro shotguns, one savage shotgun, one walther with two magazines, a revolver with two magazines, an austia with two magazines, a ceska pistol with an empty magazine and 565 ammunition of different calibers.
Other items recovered are 72 medium and 45 small tins of pointed head pellets, two tins of eley wasp, 25 pistol holster, nine double magazine carriers, six single magazine carriers, 30 slings, five sniper altimate and 10 sniper torches.
Also, nine firearm handles, 12 studs, seven spacers, 15 flash aiders, seven firearm spanners, two firearm cleaning brushes, a certificate of registration as a firearm dealer, an expired Nairobi city county business permit of number 1476629, two firearm movement register and assorted firearm manuals were also recovered.
The items were taken to Kilimani Police Station.

Lugwili was arrested alongside seven foreigners from DR Congo, Rwanda and Uganda, DCI boss George Kinoti said at the time.
