Nairobi’s Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi on Friday 18th June 2021

at Milimani Law Court declined to issue a warrant of arrest against

alleged land Fraudster John Mugo Njeru for failing to

appear before the lower criminal court to plead to several charges.

 

 

 

 

 

The dispute property is a prime 13 acres at leafy Kitsuru Estate near

Kihingo Village Estate valued at 2.6 Billion Kenya shillings, where it

is alleged that the suspect acquired illegally.

 

 

 

 
Through an oral submission before the trial Court, the State

Prosecutor while associating with the submissions made by the

complainant, urged  Court to issue a warrant of arrest against the

suspect John Mugo Njeru.

 

 

 

 

 

The State Prosecutor further informed trial Court that through their

independent investigations, they found out that, the suspect feigned

sickness and  medical documents produced before court were

not proper.

 

 

 

 
Responding to the State oral submissions, the suspect, through his

Lawyer Peter Njagi , urged court to dismiss the State application

since, allegations made by  State was not supported by any

documents and their submissions was after thought.

 

 

 

 

 
The defence, Officer of the Court Peter Njagi informed and assured

Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi that contrary to allegations levelled

by State against their client, they are ready to produce the suspect

for plea taking.
