Husband of Buru buru woman evicted from police house is a deserter – police

Buru buru police station has denied claims that they forcefully evicted the family of their colleague who is reportedly admitted in hospital.

A video went viral on social media last week showing two police officers trying to evict the wife of their colleague who is said to have been hospitalized.

In the video, a female and male officer manhandle their colleague’s wife and even drag her down a staircase of an apartment as angry neighbours protested.

A police report on the incident states that their colleague, identified as PC Charles Ochieng Adao, wrote a resignation letter on May 31, 2017 informing his superiors of his decision to quit the force.

The report claims PC Ochieng got a response in August 2017 through the County Commander, who also  directed the Buru buru OCPD to provide him with the necessary documents to facilitate his departure.

The officer then went AWOL (Absent Without Official Leave) before he could officially resign, it states.

Five months later, in January 2018, a desertion signal was sent and a file opened for the missing constable. A warrant of arrest was also obtained which is still in force.

On April 12, a letter was sent to strike the officer off the pay roll and “retrieve any police belongings from the said officer’s house and to make inventory and to also vacate the family from the house”.
