A video has emerged showing the last moments before a rider, Rabin Ogeto, met his death along Kirinyaga Road in the Nairobi Central Business District (CBD) on Saturday, September 25. In the video issued by the deceased's family, around six Boda Boda riders appear to be in a confrontation with two armed police officers. One of the police officers shoots in the air intending to disperse the rowdy riders.
However, the police officer can be seen charging towards a rider who runs for his life. Unfortunately, the officer aims and shoots him in the back.
Angered by the happenings, enraged boda boda riders gathered near the scene and started demonstrating to protest the shooting of their colleague whose body was lying lifeless in the middle of the road.
A post mortem examination disclosed that the deceased died of excess hemorrhage from a gunshot. The family is seeking justice for the loss of their kin. "He was very obedient, responsible, and was supporting the sister with school fees," said his father Daniel Aboki.
