BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI 30TH JAN,2017-The lawyer representing the Akasha brothers wants the court to order officers involved in the arrest summoned to reveal the whereabouts of his clients.Appearing before Mombasa High Court, Lawyer Cliff Ombeta lamented that his clients Ibrahim Akasha, Baktash Akasha and two others have been missing since their arrest by police last week.

Ombeta now claims that a police officer cocked his gun and threatened to shoot him dead after he stormed his clients’ compound during their dramatic arrests.State counsel, through its lawyer Yamina Jami, however, told the court that one of the suspects is in custody, without revealing his identity.

In his ruling, Chief Magistrate Julius Nang’ea said the court would have to wait for response from the High Court after recalling their file.The matter will be mentioned on 13th February 2017.
