Police have engaged rowdy youth protesting outside businessman Jimmy Wanjigi's in running battles.

The police lobbed tear gas to disperse the protesting crowd at Wanjigi's Westlands office along General Mathenge Drive.

Sources say Wanjiigi is still holed up in the Kwacha Group of Companies office.

Heavily armed Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) detectives raided Wanjigi's office on Monday evening.

It still remains unclear the purpose of the night raid at Wanjigi's office.
