Samuel Endesia Otengo was accused of robbing Corporal Patrick Murimi Wamae of a G3 rifle S/No 6927317 loaded with 20 rounds of 7.62 mm caliber ammunition. He is alleged to have commit the offence on October 23 at around 0300hrs at Kitusuru in Nairobi.
Ontengo faced a second count of violently robbing Abdul Rahman of a mobile phone and cash all amounting to Sh 3,400. A third count alleged that he robbed John Kioko and Michael Malewa of personal property valued at Sh7,350 at the same place and date.
According to the prosecution, the accused threatened to use violence on his victims. The accused person was arrested last Thursday following protests by residents of rising insecurity in the area. Acting Chief Magistrate Doreen Mulekyo directed Ontengo to post Sh 1 million bond to secure his liberty pending trial on January 9, next year.
