Lubya was accosted at 10pm by three thugs who demanded documents and cash before they shot him and injured his wife.
Western police commander Moses Ombati said the gang later loaded some stolen items onto the victims’ car and escaped.
“We don’t know the motive but we have a team on the ground looking for them. He died on arrival at the hospital while the wife is stable in hospital,” the police boss stated.
Lubya who was shot once in the head, execution style, had previously filed a report with the police in fear for his life.
And Lubya reportedly received a call from unknown people when he was attacked.
The thugs stole household items and his vehicle, which they used to escape.
