He has been in police custody since September 4 and has also been linked to the abduction of Nation journalist Barack Oduor and Sharon Otieno.

The Prosecution led by Jacob Ondari now say that Oyamo is the “main man” in this case and have filed an affidavit to opposing his release on bail.

The Defence have however asked the court to release the accused person on bail though they don’t have a formal application.

“We have just been served by the Prosecution the affidavit and we ask for time to respond to the affidavit, we think that two days should be enough,” said Oyamo’s lawyer.

The Prosecution has opposed his release saying they have an affidavit to support their application.

Sharon Otieno was found dead near Kodera forest on September 5, 2018.

Homicide detectives have since revealed that Sharon was raped and stabbed several times on the stomach, back and neck.

The court ruled that Oyamo be remanded until October 8, 2018.

In her ruling, Justice Lessy Lessit said that this will allow further probe into the murder of Rongo University student Sharon Otieno.
