An Administration Police officer who is accused of shooting dead a boda boda rider at the Mama Lucy Kibaki Hospital in Nairobi on February 19, 2020, has been released on Sh1 million bond with a surety of similar amount.
Makadara Chief Magistrate Heston Nyaga freed Mr Zadock Ochuka Oyieka on Friday. The court ordered the officer to neither interfere with witnesses nor investigations.
The magistrate ordered Oyieka not to go to the scene of the incident – the hospital – under any circumstances, nor to contact any witnesses.
The Directorate of Criminal Investigations had sought extension of custodial orders but Mr Oyieka’s lawyer Nick Omari opposed the application.
Chief Inspector Wilson Yengo of Kayole DCI office had sought more time to close gaps pointed out by the Director of Public Prosecutions.
