The police have defended the man said to be a Kenya Defence Forces officer who visited chief suspect in Sharon Otieno’s murder, Michael Oyamo, at Homa Bay police station on Saturday.

Even though KDF spokesman Col Paul Njuguna denied that the military had sent Mr Lukas Ouko, 34, to Homa Bay “for any reason”, Nyanza Directorate of Criminal Investigations Chief Michael Barasa Monday said he had contacted the Department of Defence (DoD) and confirmed that Mr Oyamo was its officer.

“I have contacted the DoD which has confirmed the man was officially sent to Homa Bay since Mr Oyamo is an ex-Navy officer and he was to speak to him on certain issues,” Mr Barasa said.

“Therefore, we cannot say he was an imposter. He had an official letter and Military ID that the DoD authenticated,” he added.

Earlier on Saturday, KDF spokesman Mr Njuguna had said when asked by the Nation regarding the visitor: “KDF has not dispatched a team or an individual to Homa Bay for any reason. If anyone or a group of people are purporting to be from KDF, they are fraudsters and should be reported to the police.”
