Two police officers who shot dead
an Administration Police officer
and his two relatives will be
charged with murder, the Director
of Public Prosecutions has said.
The fatal shooting that took place
on October 7 last year in Dagoretti
was investigated by the
Independent Policing Oversight
Authority (Ipoa) who later
recommended a murder charge.
Ipoa took over the investigations
after police maintained that the
deceased persons were robbers.
“Ipoa concluded investigations and
recommended murder charges to
the Director of Public Prosecutions
(DPP). The DPP concurred with
Ipoa’s recommendations that the
police officers be arraigned in
court on three counts of murder,”
Ipoa Senior Corporate
Communications Officer Dennis
Oketch said on Monday.
