This comes even as his legal team remained in the dark over his whereabouts.

On Tuesday morning, advocate June Ashioya and her co-counsel arrived at the Homa Bay High Court to wait for their client to appear as was directed by the Senior Magistrate the previous day.

However, hours later, Oyamo was nowhere to be seen forcing them to go back to Homa Bay Police Station to find out his whereabouts.

Members of the public had also gathered outside the Homa Bay High Court waiting for the arraignment but began to leave after they realised Oyamo was nowhere in sight.

Oyamo was arrested on September 4 after the abduction of Sharon Otieno and Nation journalist Barack Oduor.

Sharon’s body was found a day later next to Kodera Forest with stab wounds that the Government Pathologist said also pierced the unborn baby.
