High court cancels bond granted to SSU cops who were charged in connection to abduction of two Indians.

The high court has cancelled bond issued to 15 police officers including SSU cops who were charged for allegedly abducting two Indians and a Kenyan.

Kiambu high court has stayed the ruling issued by Kahawa law courts admitting the 15 to bail pending hearing of case filed by state challenging the decision.

Justice Dorothy Chepkwony has certified the application as urgent and stayed the bond ruling.

This means that the officers will now go back to custody as they await the ruling of the high court.

The accused in the case are Chief Inspector Peter Muthee, Inspector James Kibosek, Corporals Joseph Kamau, David Chepcheng, Joseph Mwenda, John Mwangi and Hilary Limo, Constables Stephen Luseno, Simon Muhuga, Paul Njogu, Boniface Otieno, Elkana Njeru, Fredrick Thuku, John Wanjiku Macharia and Warden Michael Kiplangat.

They include SSU cops, DCI, NIS and KWS all denied 17 counts related to the abduction of Mohammed Zaid Sami Kidwai, Zulfiqar Ahmed Khan and Nicodemus Mwange.

Among the counts include abduction to commit murder, cooperation in the execution of cruel y treatment, conspiracy to commit a felony, and forgery among others.

“On July 22 and 23 in Nairobi, the accused persons while on board motor vehicles KDD 632j, KDG 836X, KDH 262S and GKB 809U and other unknown vehicles, with intent to abduct, trailed and intercepted a motor vehicle with intent to cause Mohammed who is an Indian national, who was an occupant, to be secretly and wrongfully abducted or maybe murdered or put in danger of being murdered,” the chargesheet reads.

According to the chargesheet, Muthee, Kamau, Chepcheng, Luseno and Muhuga forcefully ejected and bundled them in another vehicle before subjecting them to confinement at Old Nairobi Area police headquarters SSU offices in Upper Hill without regard to their lives and security and ultimately causing their enforced disappearance.

It was also alleged that being public servants in the defunct special services unit (SSU), DCI, NIS, and KWS, they cooperated in the execution of the cruel treatment of Mohammed Khan and Mwange thereby causing their enforced disappearance.
