On Sunday, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) posted a tweet about two gangsters being shot dead and a large sum of money recovered.
The tweet was typical of the DCI’s style of reporting crime stories, but moments later they deleted the tweet and posted a new one with different images. The first tweet had shown the legs of the two suspected gangsters, while the second tweet had images of guns, ammunition and cash.

In the comment section of the first tweet, someone posted an image of two men who were believed to be the suspects. They were sitting on the ground, tied to one handcuff, and surrounded by police officers in army fatigues.

This led to speculation that the police officers were responsible for their deaths, as the DCI’s report of a “fierce shootout” did not seem to match up with the image of the suspects in handcuffs.
Many people on social media began to question the DCI’s version of events, and the story was quickly dubbed “sceptical.” The DCI has not provided any further information or explanation, leading to more questions about the incident.
The DCI’s report claimed that the two suspects were part of a six-man gang that had been on the police radar. The gang was accused of stealing an AK-47 rifle from a police officer on February 25, 2023, which was recovered after the shootout.
The lack of transparency and clarity from the DCI has fueled speculation and skepticism about the events that led to the suspects’ deaths.
The DCI’s reputation for creative reporting and sensationalism has only added to the confusion and doubt surrounding this case. It remains to be seen whether the DCI will provide more information to clarify what happened and address the concerns of the public.
