Embakasi East MP Babu Owino will remain in custody until Monday afternoon when the Millimani Law Courts Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi will make the discussion on his bail application.
Last week on Monday, the Babu – real name Paul Ongili – denied an attempted murder charge at the Milimani Law Courts, after he allegedly shot Felix Orinda aka DJ Evolve at B Club in Kilimani, Nairobi.
CCTV footage from the club showed Babu, shooting the DJ, while smoking shisha, and surrounded by his friends – including a woman who was seated next to him.
DJ Evolve, still admitted at Nairobi Hospital having undergone surgeries to remove a bullet that was lodged in his neck, has finally spoken since the incident.
The 25-year-old raised concerns over his safety while being interviewed during the bail assessment interview conducted after he fully regained consciousness.
“I am tired, I am in pain and am traumatised. I don’t want to talk and I cannot fathom anything. I have not slept for days because I am scared of my life and future,” DJ Evolve is quoted the bail assessment report.
The DJ’s family too has opposed the release of the ODM legislator saying it is majorly concerned about the security of their son and that of other family members.
“Their plea to the court is that if the same is granted, other protective measures should be instituted to ensure the security of the victim, family and also to safeguard against witness interference,” the report reads in part.
