Lawyer Ahmedinasir Abdullahi today recorded a new statement with police and named officers he claims were detailed to kill him by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) using some Russian mercenaries.
Ahmedinasir told sleuths at Kilimiani police station that the two officers both chief inspectors (names withheld for legal reasons) were part of the killer squad targeting him.
The lawyer in his statement introduced a new twist to the saga claiming that the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) Ndegwa Muhuro whom he accused of plotting to kill him had owned up to the marauder plot.
Accompanied by his lawyer Dennis Ben Mosota, Ahmednasir told investigators that Muhoro had allegedly told his close confidants that indeed he was to be eliminated allegedly by Russian mercenaries and not by his officers.
“He (Muhoro) has told many individuals that where as the scheme to kill me was true and real, it was the Russian Mafia and not him who intended to kill me. He further informed my sources that I have allegedly swindled huge sums rom the Russian mafia and this scheme to kill me,” the statement adds.
He claimed that the assertion by Muhoro on an alleged scheme by a Russian mafia to eliminate him was important and had to be pursued, as he has never acted for any Russians in his law practice and thus could have not conned them.
Yesterday Muhoro refused to comment on the new claims against him saying the matter is under investigations.
He however maintained that detectives at Kilimani have been given express directives to investigate the issue without any interference.
