Former Nairobi gubernatorial candidate and Author of the book 'Peeling Back The Mask' Miguna Miguna says he’s been arrested by an “assassination squad” at his Runda home in Nairobi. The self-declared National Resistance Movement (NRM) General allegedly sent a distress text to a Nation editor saying that police had invaded his home on Friday, February 2 morning.

Alleged distress text by Miguna

The lawyer took an active part in the swearing-in of National Super Alliance (NASA) Coalition leader Raila Odinga on January 30 and later on asked NASA supporters to pull down portraits of President Uhuru Kenyatta down.

He signed the oath taken by Raila as a witness under his Miguna and Company Advocates law firm name and said he does not regret commissioning the oath taken insisting that he contravened no law.

"They have arrested me. They have bombed my house and broken everything. They are still here. They are searching all rooms. It’s an assassination squad. I can’t speak. They are still here ... looking for me," read the alleged text.

He said the police were still hiding in his compound waiting for him to make a move so they would shoot him and called upon NASA supporters to rush to his rescue.

"My house is number 486 Runda Meadows. It’s urgent and dire," read another part of the text.

Following Raila’s swearing-in, the government had announced investigations against all the people who took part in NASA's swearing-in. These include lawyers TJ Kajwang (Ruaraka MP) and James Orengo (Siaya senator).
