Dj Evolve: “My Life is in Danger If Babu Owino Is Released On Bond”
Hearing of the case involving embattled Embakasi East MP Paul Ongili alias Babu Owino was today adjourned prematurely after his supporters became too noisy.
Babu Owino supporters stormed the court and started shouting at bench judge to issue Babu Owino with a cash bail, making it difficult for proceedings to go on.
Milimani Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi was forced to adjourn the case to enable police to clear the courtroom corridors after noise from members of the public made it difficult for the proceedings to go on.
- “We cannot proceed with this hearing given the noise from the corridors. Now I ask police to escort those making noise out of the court,” said Mr Andayi.
Immediately the magistrate gave the directive, police swung into action and cleared the court corridors of noise makers.
Earlier, in the bail assessment report presented in court, the DJs family cited the security of their kin as their major concern. They asked the court to deny Mr Owino Owino bond, saying the family of DJ Odhiambo Orinda, popularly known as DJ Evolve, expressed fears that the MP would interfere with witnesses if released on bond.
The family fears that justice for their kin may be undermined due to the MP’s political influence, but defence lawyer Cliff Ombeta asked the court to overrule the prosecution and release the MP on bond.
The DJ has been at the Intensive Care Unit at Nairobi Hospital after sustaining neck injury from the shooting incident.
