Man arrested for allegedly threatening to shoot Nyong’o

Police arrested Chief of Staff Patrick Ouya after he allegedly threatened to shoot Kisumu Governor Anyang Nyongo on Tuesday.

According to County Police Commander John Kamau, they got a distress call and officers rushed to the county headquarters.

Reports indicate that Mr. Ouya apparently summoned two people from the governor’s security detail to his office and told them that he would shoot their boss.

The two then hurriedly informed the governor who called the police.

The County Police Commander said a search was conducted in Mr. Ouya’s office but no gun was found.

He is a licensed fire arm holder.

The Chief of Staff was then taken to the Central Police Station in Kisumu for questioning and released after a few hours.

Governor Nyong’o’s security team was also summoned to record a statement. The matter is still under investigation.

In January 2018, the same Mr. Ouya faced similar accusations of allegedly threatening Seme ODM chairman Leonard Ochar.

Three years ago, the same man drew out his gun at a funeral and shot in the air scaring off mourners.
