Police says deputy spokesperson Onyango was never injured in Thursday attack

Police have cleared the air about an attack on their deputy spokesperson, Superintendent of Police Patrick Onyago survived an attack on Thursday.

As he returned home while travelling on a boda boda at about 9pm on Thursday night, Onyango allegedly survived an attack by unidentified men who were trailing.

It is said that the deputy police mouthpiece jumped from the boda boda rider before sustaining injuries.

However, the police spokesperson, Emilian Kayima in a statement has refuted the narrative before giving in details what happened to their officer.

“While SP Patrick Onyango was returning home last evening at around 9:30 PM, he suspected that two boda boda riders were probably following him with possibly a bad motive. He took action by changing strategy of his movement,”Kayima said in a statement.

“He called upon the local police to intervene which was done immediately. The police escorted him home safely .He was not injured as alleged in some social media posts.”

The police mouthpiece said police have started investigations into the matter to find out the people behind the attack and their motive.

He urged the public to always be vigilant and alert to report any suspicious characters to nearby police posts and stations for redress.
