Babu Owino might have just landed himself in trouble! We have confirmed that his official statement released on Instagram might have lacked some truth.
STATEMENT BY HON. BABU OWINO ON INCIDENT
A few weeks ago, I made a public statement regarding threats that I had been receiving against my life. At the turn of the year, I reported an attempted assassination at the Parliament Police Station under OB number OB21/17/11/2019 at 17:28hrs. I have been living under the weight of intimidation and threats by my political opponents.
Yesterday was the culmination of these efforts by my enemies. While enjoying the company of my friends at a popular Nairobi restuarant, I was surrounded by a large group of aggressive individuals. In the melee, there was an exchange of gunfire.
I invite the relevant authorities to conduct their investigations without fear or favor and I remain confident that the truth will come out.
I urge my supporters to remain calm. I will continue to serve wananchi fearlessly. This will not deter me from supporting H. E Uhuru Kenyatta and H. E Raila Odinga in the journey to transform our country.
Comrade Babu Owino,
MP, Embakasi East and Leader, Youth For Africa Movement.
This is after the CCTV footage from B Club surfaced online showing what went down. From the video, it appears that DJ Evolve was talking the politician about an unknown issue before Babu Owino pulled out his gun shooting him without a second thought.
It is still unclear as what would have triggered the Embakasi MP to shoot the DJ in front of his body guard and the unknown lady standing beside him.
After the shooting Babu and the same body guard as seen dragging DJ Evolve out of the club; probably to get him some medical care.
