An employee of Deputy Chief Justice (DCJ) Philomena Mwilu is in police custody for allegedly giving false information to the police.
According to the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) George Kinoti, the employee identified as Cosmas Mutua Daudi had told police that on November 7, 2017, while walking along Makindu Road in Nairobi he was abducted by unknown people who demanded to be shown Mwilu’s home.
“While walking along Makindu Road and junction of Riara Road, he alleged to have been stopped by three people who were riding on a motorcycle who stopped him and asked him to show them where his boss lived,” said Mr. Kinoti.
The suspect claimed to have refused to give the information to the three men who forced him to board their motorbike and took him to Adams Arcade before abandoning him at Muringa road.
“He alleged that he was forced to board their motorbike and was taken towards Adams Arcade then joined Elgeyo Marakwet road. They later abandoned him at Muringa road after he failed to show them the residence of the deputy chief justice,” the statement read.
According the DCI boss, investigations into the the alleged incident established that Mutua lied to the police and that there was no such incident which police had recorded under OB. No. 44/8/11/2017.
“Investigations commenced and it was established that he gave false information and that there was no such incident,” added Mr. Kinoti in a statement.
It is, however, not clear if Mutua, who is set to be arraigned in court on Monday, was acting alone or under instructions.
The report came a month after Mwilu’s bodyguard Titus Musyoka, was shot by unknown people outside Marsabit Plaza along Ngong Road. His firearm was stolen and later recovered in what police treated as robbery with violence.
