Ms Mugoh posted photos and a video to support her claims.

The photos showed the wreckage of the engineer’s alleged car and the boda boda’s motorcycle. Both the car and the motorcycle were towed to the police station after the incident.

The video captured the engineer at the Ruai police station looking haggard and accompanied by his daughter.

In her post on Facebook, Ms Mugoh wondered why officers at Ruai Police Station released the engineer instead of taking him to court.

The office of the Director of Public Prosecution has been tagged in numerous posts on the incident.
