Sleuths from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations are out on a manhunt for a popular ODM lawyer maker over after he was caught up in an altercation that left one person unconscious.
Reports indicate that the legislator in the company of his bodyguards visited the administrator’s home yesterday at around 6 pm in the evening where they assaulted him.
The South East Alego chief Joseph Agutu Onjala is said to have been attacked by Alego Usonga Member of Parliament Samuel Atandi and his companion leaving him unconscious with head and chest injuries.
Atandi and his entourage allegedly attacked the area chief over claims that he had hired youths to disrupt his function in the area.
This is after the legislators commissioning of classroom renovations at the neighboring Unna primary school on Wednesday, January 20, 2021, did not see the light of the day after angry youth stormed and disrupted the occasion.
Youths then pursued the area MP after word got out that he had attacked their area chief, where he rushed to Nyang’oma police station to seek refuge.
While still at the station, he recorded a statement with the police, detailing that his function had been disrupted by the youth with the intention of harming him.
It’s still unclear how he managed to leave the police station afterward, with further reports indicating that Onjala’s assistant has also gone missing in unclear circumstances.
Confirming the issues Siaya County Commissioner Michael ole Tialal said the authorities have since launched a hunt for the legislator, with tensions reportedly high in Siaya town today as Boda Boda riders gathered in their numbers to protest his escape from Nyang’oma station.
“We do not where he (Atandi) is, but once we apprehend him, we shall subject him to investigations and subsequent legal action,” said ole Tialal.
