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.
Just hours after his arrest, Babu came out to give his side of the story and said the incident was a culmination of a series of death threats that he has been receiving since 2019.
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.
“In the melee, there was an exchange of gunfire,” he said.
The MP called on authorities to conduct thorough investigations to get to the bottom of the matter and ensure all those involved are brought to book.
“I invite the relevant authorities to conduct their investigations without fear or favor and I remain confident that the truth will come out.
“I urge my supporters to remain calm. I will continue to serve wananchi fearlessly. This will not deter me from supporting H. E Uhuru Kenyatta and H. E Raila Odinga in the journey to transform our country” he remarked.
