A Key businessman Chris Obure, charged with being in possession of firearm without license has been set free for lack of evidence.
Milimani Senior Principal Magistrate Bernard Ochoi on Tuesday November 15,2022 freed Obure saying that the prosecution failed to prove beyond reasonable doubt the two criminal charges against him.
However, magistrate Ochoi ruled that Obure’s personal assistant Robert Ouko has a case to answer after the prosecution successful pinned him to the crime scene at Senteu Plaza where the firearm in question was used to murder Kevin Omwenga on August 21,2020.
In the case,Obure had been accused that on August 20 at Senteu Plaza while Obure being a licensed firearm holder allowed his firearm to be used by Ouko to commit murder.
Ouko on his part is charged with being in possession of firearm and ammunition which was used to commit murder without a firearm certificate.
The offence is said to have been committed on August 2 at Colana Suites, House along Colana road in Kilimani area, Nairobi.
However Obure is not of the hook since he is also facing murder charges at the High Court. The duo are charged with murdering Omwenga
