Ndindi Nyoro Recounts 4 Torturous Hours After Police Arrest
Kiharu MP, Ndindi Nyoro, on Tuesday, September 10, recounted what he went through after he was arrested on Monday, September 9, evening.
Speaking to journalists from Murang'a County, the embattled lawmaker disclosed that he was escorted by several landrovers during the arrest.
He added that police officers who had escorted him were heavily armed, precisely mentioning the caried AK47 guns.
"I want to thank residents of Murang'a County for their prayers. Yesterday, they [police officers] arrested me and I was escorted by ten landrovers. The police officers, who were in possession of AK47 rifles, issued threats and wanted to take me to Kamukunji police station," he disclosed.
The lawmaker divulged that a police officer told him that he was supposed to be taken from Murang'a Police Station to Kamukunji Police Station in Nairobi.
"We know this and I can substantiate. Where I was supposed to be taken, there were two people there who had committed a capital offense. I was supposed to be taken there and it was not in good faith," Nyoro alleged.
On Sunday, September 8, Nyoro and nominated MP, Maina Kamanda, clashed during a service at Gitui Catholic Church in Kiharu causing chaos that disrupted the service.
Nyoro and his entourage of rowdy youth allegedly roughed up police officers and made their escape after the service.
The legislator maintained that his recent woes were linked to his hard stance against ODM leader Raila Odinga.
"I cannot be forced to support Raila nor will I push any of his agendas in my constituency via the use of hired guns," Nyoro asserted.
