Samuel Ragira was killed in mob justice, police say
Police officers who took the body of former University of Nairobi student and politician Samuel Ragira to City Mortuary recorded that he has died from an attack by a mob.
Mr Ragira, alias OCS Ragira, was on Thursday night shot dead by goons at Club 36 market located opposite Nairobi Primary School.
He is reported to have met his death when he confronted the said goons who had been terrorising traders at the “Klabu” market demanding money in exchange for stalls.
He had been opposing the goons’ activities in the market for three days.
Nairobi News has established that Mr Ragira’s body was ferried to the mortuary by a Kileleshwa Police Station official car. The body arrived at the morgue at 7:25 PM.
The police officers recorded the cause of death as “mob injustice.”
A source told Nairobi News that the body arrived at the morgue while still bleeding profusely.
“He was brought here while still bleeding profusely. Blood was still oozing from his back,” said the source.
An amateur video that has since gone viral on social media shows Mr Ragira’s body lying inside the morgue with unknown people counting the number of bullet holes in his body.
Mr Ragira contested for the Kilimani Ward Representative seat on an independent ticket.
