The Nanyuki Law Court has denied bond terms to a police constable suspected to have been linked to robbery last weekend.
The suspect was arraigned in court after surrendering to the Nanyuki Police station on Thursday in the company of his wife.
Paul Wachira Nderitu appeared before Nanyuki Chief Magistrate Jessie Nyagah where he pleaded not guilty for the charge of misusing his gun which is a government property.
Nderitu was charged that on 22nd August 2012 at Popular Bar and Restaurant in Nanyuki Township, he gave out his gun to his accomplice with intent to commit a felony named robbery.
The prosecutor Osman Mohamed told the court that though his gun was retrieved by police at the scene before he escaped, the suspect still has another gun in his possession which he might use to harm more innocent citizens.
Mohamed requested the court not to admit the suspect on bond terms because he might pay and get back to terrorize the community.
The chief magistrate ordered that the suspect be remanded at Nanyuki police station for 7 days for investigations to be finalized and the said gun to be retrieved from his possession.
