Cop who killed boda boda rider at Mama Lucy Hospital to face charges

NAIROBI, Kenya Feb 20 – An Administration Policeman accused of killing a boda boda rider at Mama Lucy Hospital was due in court on Thursday morning.

Police Spokesman Charles Owino said the officer was arrested last night after a preliminary ballistic report showed that the killer bullet was from his firearm because there were two officers on duty on Tuesday evening when the incident occurred.

“He will be in court for murder,” Owino said, “there is enough evidence that he is the one who shot and killed the boda boda rider”

Witnesses said the officer just cocked his firearm and shot at the boda boda rider despite having been subdued by guards who wanted to know why he entered the hospital with his motorcycle.

He had ferried a woman and her son who had been rescued from drowning in a river.

The Independent Policing Oversight Authority (IPOA) has launched investigations on the matter even as police prepared to charge suspect.
