The station had obtained orders from the Makadara Law Courts to hold Ahmed.

Ahmed is accused of assaulting police constable Kelvin Maina who was on duty as cell sentry personnel on Friday after he was arrested for assault.

Maina was manning cells where Ahmed was booked. The officer sustained minor injuries during the incident.

Corporal Ali Omar obtained the orders from senior resident magistrate Lewis Gatheru.
