Nairobi mall attackers caused a tragedy that was met with worldwide sorrow late last 2012 following at least 67 people killed by four gunmen in a Nairobi mall. Now, a new police report released just this week revealed that the irate attackers might have been able escape due to lax security being on guard at the time, a situation which continues to be investigated, TheMalayMan News shares this Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2013.
The destruction these Nairobi mall attackers left in their wake last year is something the families who lost loved ones will likely never forget. New York police are sharing a recently revealed report saying that a failure to capture these terrorists might have occurred because of poor security within the mall and around its perimeter at the time of the attack.
There were a minimum of 67 victims who lost their lives in the Nairobi mall attackers’ offensive, ranging from young children at the age of eight to elderly figures at the age of 78. It was Somalia’s Al-Qaeda-connected Shebab terrorist group that claimed responsibility for the frightening shooting in September 2012.
According to early reports, media officials believed that the four gunman involved in the multiple fatal shooting were able to make their escape during the violent mayhem, but Kenyan security forces claimed that they were in fact killed in a return fire offensive from Kenyan commandos.
The New York Police report has affirmed that the final confirmed appearance of the Nairobi mall attackers was 12 hours following the onset of the attack via the mall’s CCTV system, and that their bodies have not been found.
It remains a mystery whether the fanatical killers ultimately escaped the mall, or were killed themselves in the shootout. It is said that an influential factor in the NYC police press release that this lack of verification surrounding the Nairobi mall attackers' fate is due to lax security in holding a solid perimeter around the mall at the time of the attack.
