Controversial businessman Paul Kobia in trouble for ‘abduction’
Controversial businessman, Paul Kobia, and four other people have been freed on a cash bail of Ksh 100,000 each or a bond of Ksh 200,000 in a case in which they are suspected to have abducted and assaulted a Congolese national.
The five were released after the Milimani Resident Magistrate, Miriam Mugure, declined an application by the Prosecution to have them detained for 14 days to allow police conclude investigations.
Justice Mugure directed the suspects to be reporting to Kilimani Police Station three days a week.
The four other suspects arraigned in court included Alvin Anzaya, Nelson Muyi, John Mutwiri and Martin Mwangi.
The accused persons were arrested on Wednesday, March 8 and are said to be Kobia’s employees.
An affidavit presented in court by investigating officer, Mark Ntoja, stated that the complainant in the case suffered serious injuries and is currently admitted at hospital.
“The complainant and key witnesses are yet to record statement,” the prosecution said.
The court heard that that the suspects were arrested by officers in Kilimani Police Station at Mzima Springs within Kileleshwa.
The prosecution said that the investigations against the five are complex and incomplete hence require more time to pursue all leads.
According to the prosecution, the five accused persons actively participated in kidnapping Blanchard Condole from Bodson Spa and Lounge located in Kindaruma Road.
It is alleged that the five unlawful used firearms.
