The Inspector General (IG) of Police Hillary Mutyambai has called for the immediate arrest of people captured in a video forcefully dragging a man on the ground in Kwale County.
In the video which has since gone viral on social media, a man believed to be former Kaskazi Resort General Manager Chris Indeche is seen being dragged on the ground by close to ten people.
It is alleged that Indeche fell out with the resort’s management, who then ordered the men to evict him forcefully. As a result, he sustained injuries.
Kaskazi Resort is located in Ukunda in Kwale County.
National Police Service intervenes
“The [IG] has ordered the Regional Police Commander-Coast Region to immediately arrest all the perpetrators of the offence and arraign them before a court. Nobody is above the law and such acts of impunity will be met with the full force of the law,” says the National Police Service.
