They claimed the officer forcibly entered Holo’s business premise without a warrant on January 30, 2019, and took away goods worth Sh1.2 million and Sh500,000 in cash, then arrested the businessman.

They also claim the officer threatened Nurow over the case. They want the court to order the items and cash returned. They are also seeking a declaration that the officer is not fit to hold office.

The officer, through his lawyer Steve Biko, has denied taking the trader’s goods and cash.

“This is a clan issue. My client did not take a bribe and or steal any goods,” said Mr Biko.

The case will be mentioned on March 12.
