Kenya Bus cautioned its passengers against ‘sitting before checking ones seat.’
In an alert shared on social media, the criminals are placing syringes that cause the victims to feel drowsy and then lose consciousness.
”New crime alert in buses. Share with your friend. Look before you seat, please,” read the alert.

Once the victim is knocked out, the criminals then steal their goods and alight before one comes to.
The trick has been used many a times especially by vehicles commuting to the CBD (Central Business District).
