LSK has asked the Inspector General to arrest police officers for allegedly manhandling Embakasi East MP Babu Owino.
Owino was re-arrested by more than 10 officers on Wednesday shortly after he was released on Sh500,000 cash bail on incitement charges.
The MP’s lawyers were in a confrontation with the police who fired tear gas at Milimani law courts premises.
Law Society of Kenya president Isaac Okero asked the DPP to prosecute the officers for violating the constitution.
“We call upon the IG Joseph Boinnet that within seven days to give the names and force numbers of officers who are shown to have acted in violation of the constitution, failure of which we will initiate private prosecution,” he said on Thursday.
Okero said officers used force and prevented the MP’s lawyer Otiende Amollo from communicating with him.
