Wednesday July 3, 2019 - City billionaire, Paul Kobia, has accused the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) of destroying his property worth millions.
Kobia has threatened to sue the DCI for damaging his valuables and causing him over Sh5 million in losses when they raided his Presidential Secretariat Office in Kileleshwa on Wednesday
“This is not how police are required to act, they came here without search warrants and arrested over 30 of my employees even the ones who were pregnant and others with small children,” Kobia said.
He said those detectives acted with malice and their intentions were just to destroy his property without any good reason.
The businessman even accused the officers of destroying his workplace and ruining his communication gargets, such as telephone wires which he said were cut.
“What kind of officers would raid my house and destroy doors, windows, carpets and even eat all the food in the kitchen,” Kobia said.
He said the police should act in accordance with the law and stop harassing Kenyans while destroying their properties.
Kobia further alleged that the officers took away seven cars of his cars and laptops.
He now wants the Government to take action against the officers, who said had contravened the law.
“All expensive suits for my security officers were torn and destroyed and the police were acting like thugs,” he said.
Kobia was arrested for conning foreigners using fake gold.
He was released on a sh 100,000 cash bail.
