APs under probe for harming State officers
By Lucas Ng'asike
Three Administration Police (AP) officers are being investigated for allegedly assaulting three Government officers.
The two are said to have attacked a dentist at the Lodwar District Hospital and two Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) officers in a bar brawl.
The APs, one who was armed, are reported to have shot at the trio but only the dentist was hit. Turkana Central OCPD Mwaura Njoroge said police were investigating the matter.
Concepter Loposh, a local councillor and wife to the injured dentist, said the APs confronted the KWS officers at a joint in Lodwar.
"There was a brawl before it degenerated into a fight. The APs beat the officers mercilessly and left them in a pool of blood before they escaped," said Mrs Loposh.
She said her husband was not part of the brawl between the APs and the KWS officers.
"But a stray bullet, which was fired by one of the police officers, hit him on the head after it hit the ground and bounced back," said Loposh.
The OCPD said it was not clear why the officers confronted each other in the bar. "But we have launched investigation to determine the circumstance that led to this incident," said Mr Njoroge.
Njoroge said the trio had been admitted to Lodwar District Hospital. "We cannot determine the degree of the assault case now until the officers are treated and discharged," said the OCPD.
