The authenticity of senior counsel Ahmednasir Abdullahi’s pupilage certificate has been questioned yet again by city businessman Brian Yongo just days after the latter engaged in a war of words with Director of Criminal Investigations Ndegwa Muhoro.
Yongo, who has petitioned the Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko to ensure the case proceeds as required and is not prejudiced, claims Ahmednasir’s is seeking to divert the attention from the certificate alleging that his life is in danger.
The city businessman on April 6 wrote to Keriako Tobiko saying the lawyer’s assassination claims against Muhoro are meant to jeoperdise ongoing investigations on credibility of his pupillage certificate.
Yongo’s whistle blowing complaint to the law Society of Kenya (LSK) in 2011 initiated forgery probe against the fiery lawyer.
“I have a direct interest in the case of Ahmednasir’s certificate of pupilage which matter the DCI has no interest whatsoever and his officers are simply investigating the same. The application Nassir is refering to wherein the DCI has sought documents for forensic examination is subject of revision in the High Court and the same has not been finally determined and this is a bid to scuttle the same investigations,” said Yongo.
Although the case was dismissed, it is subject for review by the High Court.
Last week, Ahmednasir recorded a statement at Kilimani Police Station accusing Muhoro of plotting to kill him.
However, in an apparent defense in Muhoro’s favour, Yongo said the lawyer wants to frustrate investigations.
The businessman further said Ahmednassir vendetta against Muhoro was triggered by the detective’s refusal to subscribe to “extortion ring which he runs,” he claimed.
On his part, Muhoro said he could not have responded to the unfounded claims were it not for the seriousness he takes his office and the need for Kenyans to know the truth.
The soft spoken but firm detective said Ahmednassir portrays himself as Angel Gabriel claiming his behind the scenes activities make Lucifer appear an amateur.
And in a direct rejoinder, Muhoro said the right forum for such is in court where the veracity of allegations against Ahmednassir will be proved.
Last year, he High Court barred lawyer Ahmednassir Abdullahi and his agents against making disparaging remarks Muhoro in matters relating to the case.
Muhoro sued Ahmednassir and Nairobi Law Monthly through his lawyer Mbigi Njuguna after they failed to apologise as demanded a reportage Muhoro termed as defamatory.
In his statement to the CID officers at Kilimani Police Station in Nairobi, Ahmednassir said Muhoro was unhappy after the court quashed case Muhoro hand forwarded to scrutinise the Ahmednassir’s pupillage qualifications.
In a twin application before Justice Mbugori Msagha, Muhoro’s advocate Mbigi Njuguna successfully applied to restrain any publication linking Muhoro to alleged Tatu City scam.
The cases, number 90 of 2016 and number 91 of 2016 against Nairobi Law Monthly and Ahmednassir were filed before the Civil Division of the High Court.
