VIDEO: Rogue Embakassi Cops Reign Terror On Club Revellers After Beating By KDF Soldiers




A video doing rounds on the Internet showing police officers drawn from the Embakasi Camp reigning terror on revellers who had taken refuge in the washrooms has sparked anger and investigations.

The CCTV footage shows the incident happened on a Friday, 29th July 2016. According to information available, there was a fight between the police officers with KDF soldiers from the neighbouring Embakasi barracks. The rival teams were having drinks in the club before war broke out and the soldiers overpowered them with the serious beating.

The unarmed police officers then rushed to their stations and came back armed with the soldiers whom by then had sensed danger and drove off from the club. On realising the soldiers had left, the angered officers turned their fire on innocent patrons who were by now scared on the gunshot sounds took cover in the washrooms.

The video shows officers dragging and assaulting the helpless and unarmed revellers. ODPP.IPOA and the Police Service themselves have taken up the matter, and officers involved faced with possible disciplinary actions.

The inter-forces rivalry between the police and military isn’t new whereby the soldiers often see the cops as inferior to them. Police reforms seemingly have done less to streamline the officers who just act above limits. What did the revellers do to warrant all these? Hopefully, authorities involved strike hard on the menaces.
