Millie said Odhiambo could not remember what happened to him and how he found himself there.

“Apparently he got into a fight but he doesn’t remember what happened. He was found in a village between Germany and Poland. He can’t remember everything only that he couldn’t find his way home after finding himself in another city,” Millie said.


She said police called her after they saw Odhiambo on CCTV footage.

“The cops saw him in a CCTV footage a day before and they called me to pick him up the next day,” she said.
