Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) has reportedly lost Sh50 million after thugs dug an underground tunnel into the bank’s Thika branch.
The thugs according to photos shared on social media gained access to the bank after breaking the flour of the building that houses it.
KCB which has branches in Uganda and South Sudan has, however, neither confirmed nor refuted the breakage.
The last time KCB suffered a similar incident was in October 2012when a gangster was shot dead as his colleagues escaped with bullet wounds after a shootout with police.
They had attempted to break into and rob customers along the financial institution’s Tom Mboya Avenue branch in Nairobi.
The suspects had entered using the rear door at around 2am and later used a gas cylinder to break the doors and the strong room.
But they failed to penetrate into the vault. No money was stolen during the incident.
