Sharon Otieno was meant to be killed with five other people. George Kinoti, the director of criminal investigations (DCI) says the murderers had planned to kill other people to cover up their crime.
According to The Nairobian, those who knew details about her murder were to be murdered.
Between three to five people who knew about Sharon’s murder were to be killed. Luckily, we uncovered the conspiracy.
Six people have already been linked to the murder of the Rongo University student among them the main suspect Migori governor Okoth Obado, his assistants Micheal Oyamo, Caspal Odiero, bodyguard Elvis Omondi, driver Jack Gombe and former MCA Lawrence Mula.
The governor has been denied bail and will be remanded at the Industrial Area Prison until October 8 when the court will hear afresh his bail application.
Senior investigation officer Clement Mwangi said there is a high likelihood of Obado interfering with or intimidating prosecution witnesses if released on bail.
Caspal Obiero, another suspect in the murder of Sharon Otieno, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The other suspect Micheal Oyamo is accused to have lured Sharon from her parents’ home in Homa Bay to Rongo before she was abducted alongside Nation journalist Barrack Oduor and later murdered.
