Man who claimed to kill Fidel not arrested, say police

08 January 2015, 13:24 William Korir

Nairobi - A man who apparently claimed to have killed Fidel Odinga was not arrested, police have said.

Paul Kobia, who was allegedly arrested by police over claims he made alluding to his involvement in the death of CORD leader Raila Odinga's son, has not been arrested, police have claimed.

Some sections of the media had reported Thursday morning that Kobia was taken into custody after admitting to killing Fidel, but those claims have been swiftly denied by police.

Acting Inspector General of Police Samson Arachi says that the said man Kobia was actually taken to the Gigiri Police Station by his family members.

" Earlier today, some sections of the media reported that Paul Kobia was arrested by police in relation to the death of the late Fidel Odinga,"  he said in a statement.

" We would like to clarify that Kobia was actually taken to the police station by some of his family members wishing to have him restrained and psychiatric help sought for him after he started acting incoherently and violently".

" Mr Kobia has not been arrested as such," Arachi finished.

The death of Fidel, who died Sunday under mysterious circumstances is still yet to be known, even as the family prepares to bury him on Saturday in Bondo.
