KDRTV has confirmed that the Embakasi East MP Babu Owino has been transferred to Gigiri police station in Nairobi
Previously the lawmaker was being held at the Kilimani Police Station after he was arrested over the shooting of Felix Orinda, a DJ a club B.
His lawyer Cliff Ombeta confirmed the transfer today.
“He (Babu Owino) was transferred to the Gigiri Police Station to avoid the kind of traffic that was here yesterday….people insisting that they want to talk to him…his supporters and everybody because at that point they were interfering with investigations,” his lawyer Cliff Ombeta said on Saturday.
The lawyer also considered that authorities conducted a search in the MP`s residence in a bid to recover ammunition.
Ombeta said that Babu Oeino may be produced in court on Monday however that would depend on the condition of the victim (the DJ)
The lawyer was keen to say that there has been no indication of what the charges could be and he could no make any speculation
Ombeta also said that he is aware that the police would want to hold the MP for a longer time and that they would be moving to the court to ask for more time.
It is reported that Babu Owino shot DJ Evolve at B club in Kilimani at 7 am on Friday morning.
The DJ was then rushed to the Nairobi Hospital where emergency surgery was done on him to get rid of the bullet the lodge in his neck
Another was made later that day to remove a blood clot
The DJ`s close friend and radio presenter Joe Muchiri said that his friend went through a successful operation and he was now recovering
“DJ Evolve has left a successful surgery. Now we sit tight and wait for the recovery process to begin, it’s not an easy journey especially when nerves are involved. I wish him all the best at this time,” he said.
The reason for the transfer of the suspect from Kilimani to Gigiri police station is not yet clear.
