This is Happening right after NASA Supporters were Arrested while Attempting to Free Babu Owino
A group of five NASA supporters were on Tuesday arrested after they attempted to break Embakasi MP Babu Owino out of jail.
The five had strategically positioned themselves at the exit of the Milimani Law Courts.
As Owino was led out of the court room, the five men were assisted by a crowd of youths and managed to overpower the security officers and successfully freed the MP.
However, the former student leader’s freedom was short lived as the marshals were able to get reinforcement and successfully recaptured him before he was led out through an alternative exit route normally used by the judges.
Five of those who had engaged in the melee were arrested and held at the Milimani Law Court cells.
Owino is facing charges of subversion by allegedly creating disaffection against the presidency.
If found guilty, the newly elected MP could be sentenced for up to seven years in jail.
