Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja has denied allegations that he was early Saturday morning freed after spending the night in police custody following his arrest for violating COVID-19 curfew rules.
According to a police report seen by Kenyan Times, Senator Sakaja was found drinking at Ladies Lounge in Kilimani with ten other people at around 1 a.m.
The report stated that the Senator was advised to leave but refused and instead “became violent raising his hands up to be handcuffed.”
“He incited others not to get away hence was arrested together with three others who refused to give their names for disobeying curfew orders,” read the report.
“In the course of his arrest, others escaped. While in custody he was asked to be given free bond but refused to leave cells threatening to transfer all officers within 24 hours.”
However, the senator has stated that he has never been arrested and he should be shown the OB to prove that it is him.
