The investigating officer Dicken Omollo informed the court that te police had arrested the 10 youths after a series of complains from Majengo residents of a group of youths believed to be attacking residents at night.

Omollo made an application to have the 10 suspects detained at Makupa police station for 5 days to enable him conclude the investigation of the case.

“When we arrested the suspected in Majengo we recovered some crude weapons and narcotic and we request the five days to finalize the investigations” said Omollo

However the Lawyer AB Olaba objected the application made by the investigation officer.

He said the affidavit sworn by the officer was defective and had no stamp from the commission of oaths.

“The contents of such an affidavit can not be dimmed fit and the section 180 of the criminal procedure code under which the affidavit was filed does not comply to the facts of the case” said Olaba

Magistrate Kachuodho granted the police three days to complete their investigations.

She said it will be fare so to allow police complete the investigation to avoid a scenario where innocent people are charged.

The case will be mentioned on October 3
