City lawyer Assa Nyakundi is not on the run and no warrant of arrest has been issued against him, his lawyer Danstan Omari has said.

Speaking to Citizen Digital on Monday, Omari dismissed as false reports aired on K24 that claimed police are after Mr. Nyakundi on suspicion that he could abscond trial after he failed to appear in court on Thursday last week in a case where he is charged with fatally shooting his son Joseph Nyakundi.

“How can the police say they are looking for him (Assa Nyakundi) at his house, yet there are orders restraining him from accessing his house?” Omari questioned.

Omari further stated that they have instructions to sue the TV station over the report that claims detectives could neither reach Mr. Nyakundi on phone nor find him at his home.

Mr Nyakundi was charged with manslaughter on April 26 at the Kiambu Law Courts and released on a cash bail of Ksh.300,000.

The lawyer told police he was trying to holster his firearm while in the car when he accidentally fired, shooting his son in the chest.
