Top city lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi, also known by the nickname Grand Mulla, has claimed that his life is in danger.
The vocal and vibrant advocate claims that he is being hunted by the Director of Criminal Investigation, Ndegwa Muhoro.
Mr Abdullahi on Wednesday, April 5, recorded a statement with the police claiming that his life is in danger for his continuous involvement in the Tatu city land dispute.
Mr Abdullahi, who recorded statement at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations in Kilimani, Nairobi, stated that his murder was to be executed at the end of March, 2017 – and he only escaped the assassination because he was out of the country.
Mr Abdullahi says that he jetted back into the country on the night of April 2, 2017 – and on April 3, a senior officer in the Directorate of Criminal Investigation called to meet him urgently.
He says the officer revealed to him that Mr Muhoro had constituted a team of five officers to execute him.
In his eight-page statement, Mr Abdullahi states that Mr Muhoro looks at him as a stumbling block in the conspiracy with Tatu city land fraudsters to intimidate real land owners and get away with the land.
“I revealed to the DPP via a three pages letter that Mr Muhoro was paid a bribe of KSh50 million and was promised 300 acres of the land once the matter is resolved,” says Mr Abdullahi in his statement.
The advocate further states that Mr Muhoro is one of the principal players in the scheme to defraud the Tatu city land owners.
According to Mr Abdullahi, Mr Muhoro’s role is to threaten and intimidate legal land owners opposing the fraudsters’ efforts.
Mr Abdullahi in his statement maintains that should anything happen to him or his family members, Mr Muhoro should be held accountable.
Mr Abdullahi has asked the Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet to help him by investigating the claims using a private investigation agency.
DCI Ndegwa Muhoro is yet to respond to Mr Abdullahi’s claims.
