Criminal lawyer Cliff Ombeta has come out in defense of his client, who is also the Embakasi East MP Babu Owino following his arrest on Friday morning after a shooting incident in a Nairobi club.
The lawyer said it prompted the vocal MP to defend himself after his security and safety were threatened while at the club in the city center. Babu had been at the B club when he allegedly shot a DJ.
“The DJ Scared Babu Owino by Shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’.The security situation in the country is wanting since the Dusit attack and my client did everything humanly possible to defend himself from the impending attack,” Ombeta has now revealed to the media.
The lawyer added since last year his client had complained about threats to his life and had been forced to arm himself whenever he roamed the different joints in the city.
Ombeta could not forget clearing that Babu is a licensed gun holder and he regretted the act, saying he will be ready to cooperate with the police in investigating the matter. The police are currently in hold of the gun.
