The controversial leader was allegedly involved in a shooting in Nairobi’s B Club located along Galana Road within Kilimani.
The Directorate of Criminal Investigations has just issued a statement on Twitter regarding the case.
“Detectives based at Kilimani have today arrested Hon. Paul Ongili alias Babu Owino.
The Member of Parliament for Embakasi East was arrested following a shooting incident at B Club located along Galana Road within Kilimani.
The MP is in lawful custody as further investigations continue,” read the tweet.
Sources have confirmed that a DJ suffered gunshot wounds in the shooting and is currently in ICU at Nairobi Hospital.
While the law requires full evidence to convict anyone, netizens are already making their judgement on social media.
One comment on Twitter read “Further investigations??? Just get the witnesses from the club, arraign the man in court and have him convicted.”
@Stephen Omondi on twitter wrote “Being foul mouthed is one thing, threatening others lives is another and should be treated with contempt it deserves, let him rot in there!”
An angry tweet read ”The thug should be jailed. Sad that we have thugs as lawmakers.”
On the other hand, there are those who support the MP and tweeted supportive messages.
@Frank Mtetezi wrote “Please guys let’s wait for the evidence and the whole story to unravel!!”
Another user wrote “Babu Owino was acting in self defense. The DJ is the one who removed a gun ready to shoot. Babu is innocent.”
