Yesterday, Pope Adika said he had not recorded any statement with the police, neither any of his allies has been arrested in regards to the incident.

“We will be issuing a comprehensive statement on the matter on Saturday,” he said.

Cardinal Chamalengo Joseph Aloo Ong’awo who is allied to Pope Ochieng also said no one in their camp had either been arrested or recorded statement with police.

“We are shocked that nothing is going on, yet families of those killed would want a postmortem report conducted before burials,” he said.
