Nairobi - A man has sued a local bank for detaining him unlawfully for a number of days in the process denying him his conjugal rights.
The man, Peter Muiru says that the bank detained him in 1994 for apparently plotting to kill the Limuru Branch manager for a period of five days.
He was however released from custody and no charges have been levelled ever since.
He was however fired from his job and he wants Barclays Bank Kenya LTD to pay damages for unlawful dismissal as well as compensation for wrongful detention which denied him his freedom as well as conjugal rights.
He also says that the bank threatened him after he said he would pursue the matter at a court of law and wants them to compensate him for the incident.
" I suffered wrongful detention, the withdrawal of my right to freedom and conjugal rights as well as wrongful dismissal afterwards destabilized my life, " Muiru said in his suit.
Muiru was a storekeeper at the bank.
