Embakasi East MP Babu Owino was on Friday arrested in connection with a shooting incident at B-Club in Nairobi’s Kilimani area.

The lawmaker was accused of shooting an individual at the popular club and the DCI stated that investigations are still ongoing.

He said that was enjoying the company of his friends on Friday morning when a large group of ‘aggressive individuals’ surrounded them.

According to him, a melee ensued and there was exchange of gunfire.

“At the turn of the year, I reported an attempted assassination at the Parliament Police Station under OB number OB21/17/11/2019 at 17:28hrs. I have been living under the weight of intimidation and threats by my political opponents.

“Yesterday was the culmination of these efforts by my enemies. While enjoying the company of my friends at a popular Nairobi restaurant, I was surrounded by a large group of aggressive individuals.
