A Form Three student was on Wednesday arraigned before Milimani Law Court to answer to charges of assaulting a police officer in Nairobi.
20-year-old Samuel Wainaina Ngugi from a Nakuru secondary school was being accused of allegedly assaulting and injuring Police Constable Khalif Mbokomo of Nairobi’s Central Police station.
The student from Nester Secondary School in Nakuru is said to have committed the offence on October 21 along Tom Mboya Street in Nairobi.
The court heard on the material date, officer Mbokomo together with his colleague, Dancun Kimainga, stopped Ngugi and asked him to identify himself because he looked suspicious.
The accused person however turned violent and started insulting the officers before he attacked Constable Mbokomo.
Nairobinews.nation.co.ke reports that Ngugi started telling the officers “mtanijua” and even called the officers prostitutes.
Senior resident magistrate Bernard Ochoi heard that Ngugi during the incident beat up and injured Constable Mbokomo before he was arrested.
Ngugi however denied the charges before the court and asked to be released on lenient cash bail saying he needs to return to school for the end term examinations.
Magistrate Ochoi ordered that he be released on a bond of Sh50,000 with a surety of similar amount or an alternative cash bail of Sh20,000.
