 During the session, the lawmaker alleged that the Kilimani Division OCPD threatened him moments after the detectives arrested him. 

He said that the police boss told him: "It is now between you and me.”

The lawmaker has now said that he wants the police probe because he feels his life is in danger. 

Kandara MP Alice Wahome has also lamented that she received the same threats from the OCPD after the dramatic arrest of his counterpart.

Wahome is Kuria’s lawyer in the assault case. The lawmaker was freed on Saturday after he denied the allegations levelled against him. 

While appearing before Chief Magistrate Martha Mutuku, Kuria insisted that he had not done anything wrong as alleged by the complainant. 

The lawmaker has since faulted the police for disobeying court orders. He asked President Uhuru Kenyatta-led government to ensure police respect court orders under all circumstances. 

He has also maintained that he will not remain silent no matter what happens to him. Kuria has been one of the leaders rooting for Ruto’s Presidency before 2022.
