Police brutality video is from archives, says police boss

Police now claim that a video circulating on social media showing GSU officers clobbering University of Nairobi students is not a recent footage.

The Nairobi County Police Commander Japhet Koome told a press conference Tuesday that the video was uploaded by bloggers to discredit police officers.

He, however, says reports that police officers raped students are under investigation.

Police spokesman Charles Owino has urged any student who could have been attacked to report to the police station and record their statements.

Police headquarters said the conflict at the university is between the rival camps, supporting the different student leaders.

“There is absolutely no conflict between the police and the students. So far, no victim has reported to the police to claim he or she was assaulted,” a statement from the police read.
