A police officer attached to the Kasarani Police Station has been arrested after he reportedly assaulted a senior officer stationed at the Kayole Police Station.
It all started when Jackson Owino, a criminal investigations officer met a lady identified as Elizabeth Wangari at the Seasons Lounge and allegedly threatened her.
Owino had gone to the pub’s carwash with his official car when he met Wangari smoking and tried to discourage her from smoking resulting in a heated confrontation.
In a police report, the CID officer told police officers that smoking was not good for the lady and he wanted her to stop smoking.
Offended by Owino’s remarks, Wangari is said to have stormed out of the club and threatened to teach the officer a lesson.
She went straight to Kasarani Police Station which is a few metres from the pub and came back with two officers identified as Marwa Matiko and Charles Maina.
The officers confronted Owino demanding to know why he had threatened Wangari, shortly before Matiko cocked his riffle and placed it on Owino’s chest threatening to shoot him.
The Kayole SCCIO was later handcuffed alongside another man, Zacharia Mwambia, and frogmarched to the Kasarani Police Station with kicks and blows.
Owino was thrown into custody but he was later released after the intervention of a senior officer at the station.
Matiko was disarmed and booked into custody for the offence of assault.
