Former Nairobi Governor MIKE SONKO will spend spend five more nights in police cell after court set his bail ruling for next week.
Sonko, who is facing multiple assault charges, spent Wednesday night at the Kamiti Maximum GK Prison where he was whisked to late evening from the Gigiri Police Station where he was previously being held.
This came after an officer from the Anti-Terrorism Police Unit of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) swore an affidavit accusing Sonko of having terror links, hence seeking 30 days to detain him pending investigations.
Chief Inspector Newton Thimangu, in the affidavit, claimed to be in possession of intelligence information about Sonko allegedly recruiting a militia group to disrupt the peace and stability of the nation.
According to the Inspector, Sonko is suspected to have been procuring military attire associated with terrorist groups that pose a threat to the national security and sovereignty of the country.
“…the suspect has started arming his private security agents with full military attire namely military boots, military jungle uniform and firearms,” read the affidavit.
