Embakasi East Member of Parliament Babu Owino has issued an official statement following his arrest earlier today.
His statement comes after DCI recovered the gun he used during the shooting at the club.
The gun was recovered together with nine rounds of ammunition. It will serve as evidence during the trial.
The DJ in the ICU at Nairobi Hospital is DJ Evolve who is well known. He frequents many clubs and entertainment spots in Nairobi.
Babu Owino who is being detained recently issued his statement that claimed his life has been in danger for some weeks now.
He said that at the turn of the year he reported an assassination attempt at the Parliament Police station.
Since then, he has been receiving constant threats by who he claims are his 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,” read the statement.
Babu Owino asked that the authorities carry out their investigations without favor or fear.
“I remain confident that the truth will come out,” said Babu as he urged his supporters to remain calm.
He finished by saying that this case will not stop him from serving the people.
“This will not deter me from supporting H.E Uhuru Kenyatta and H.E Raila Odinga in the journey to transform our country.”
