Terror executions lies, say Kenya Police
17 September 2015, 16:30
Nairobi - There has been no executions by Kenya Police and any report so is a lie and must be proven, Spokesman Charles Owino has said.
Owino was reacting Thursday to reports that the Kenya Police Service has been taking part in extra judicial killings.
The report was released by the Kenya National Commision of Human Rights, which stated that 25 people had been killed in anti terror operations.
It added that another 81 were missing as a result.
Owino though says that the reports are false and that any evidence should be put forward as far as the case is concerned.
" The reports are just that reports and false ones," he told News24.
" You can choose the side you want to listen to but if you want the truth, if the government chose to kill and bury they would do a very good job and none of you would know anything," he added.
The report also stated that the government had a number of camps in north eastern Kenya which is used to detain and torture its detainees.
Owino called the said camps fiction.
" Kenya is a big country. Why have they not mentioned the locations of the said camps? It is all fiction," he added.
Kenya was advised by US President Barack Obama during his visit not to deal with terrorism in a more democratic manner which would in turn earn it goodwill from Kenyans and not further alienate minority communities.
