Lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi on Wednesday recorded a statement at the Kilimani Police Station, Nairobi, sensationally accusing Director of Criminal Investigations Ndegwa Muhoro of planning to kill him.
The lawyer alleged that Mr Muhoro had assembled a team of five police officers to kill him, among them a “Mr Kamau”, adding that the five are well known for “carrying out executions on behalf of Mr Muhoro”.
He now wants Inspector-General of Police Joseph Boinnet to form an independent team of officers outside the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) to investigate the DCI boss.
He alleged that he got the information about the “plot” from a trusted senior police officer attached to the DCI, who “revealed” that Mr Muhoro had planned to end the lawyer’s life before the end of March but the plan failed because Mr Abdullahi was out of the country.
“I left the country on Friday, March 24, to attend a Commonwealth lawyers’ conference in Australia, then travelled to Sydney, where I stayed for three days until March 30,” Mr Abdullahi said in the statement.
He said he later travelled to Dubai and returned to Kenya on April 2, a day before the call from the senior police officer leaking the information.
“My contact warned me to take the information very seriously,” Mr Abdullahi said in the statement, alleging that the officer had told him that the team had been monitoring his phones and discovered that he was out of the country.
Mr Abdullahi, who spent three hours at the Kilimani DCI offices, alleged that in a briefing to the team assembled to kill him, Mr Muhoro had said that the lawyer was an obstacle to him and his partners in a dispute involving land belonging to Tatu City in Kiambu.
