Police arrest moneyed city businessman for misuse of firearm – PHOTOS
Controversial businessman Chris Obure has been arrested in Nairobi days after he was accused threatening revelers with a gun outside B Club in Nairobi, Kilimani OCPD Peter Kattam confirms.
Mr Obure has been accused of at least five cases involving misuse of firearm, especially outside night clubs, with police dragging their feet before taking any action.
The latest incident happened last Friday when Mr Obure threatened to shoot a man at Kilimani’s B-Club. According to a report made at Kilimani Police Station, Occurrence Book (OB) number 9/31/12/2016, Mr Obure had double-parked his black Range Rover, blocking other revelers.
DREW HIS GUN
When he was called to move his car, he instead got infuriated, drew his gun and threatened to shoot the two customers.
He then smashed the driver’s window of a silver Volkswagen Passat. On November 2 last year, the same businessman threatened to shoot Mr Alex Lwin at Klub House along Ojijo road in Parklands but no action was taken.
Mr Lwin later officially complained to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) boss Ndegwa Muhoro, the Independent Police Oversight Authority (Ipoa) and the Office of Director of Public Prosecution.
