Officers executing an arrest in the past/Courtesy
A city lawyer has called out police officers attached to Thika Police Station in Kiambu County for reportedly arresting a woman who filmed them while searching for a suspect inside her house
Since the officers allegedly did not show her the arrest warrant, she started filming the officers as they executed the search inside the house.
Wahome noted that the officers were pissed off when they realised the woman was filming them. They allegedly grabbed the phone and deleted the video before arresting the woman
Wahome is now calling upon the station commanding officer (OCS) to release the two women, Ida, and her sister, who was also arrested after she tried the follow the officers and know where they were taking her sister.
"Ida has been arrested for recording on the phone as your officers were searching for her husband Samuel Mathenge under the bed, on seats, behind the TV, and everywhere without a search warrant. The officers grabbed her phone and deleted the clip and now they will accuse her of assault," the lawyer said, adding "now they will accuse her of assault."
