Eight guns and forty title deeds were discovered yesterday in Migori Governor Okoth Obado’s homes in Nairobi and Migori. This was after Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission officers raided the offices and the homes of the besieged governor and confiscated among the things the firearms, title deeds, electronics and bank statements.
Anonymous sources said the early morning raid enabled the officers to obtain crucial documents which could aid in their probe on graft allegations against Migori Governor Okoth Obado over his hand in the misappropriation of Ksh.2 billion from the county.
Governor Obado, who is also facing charges of murdering a university student Sharon Otieno, is accused by the anti-graft body of siphoning Ksh.2 billion from the county coffers through over 23 companies registered by his relatives..
“The commission received credible information that a few persons well known to be proxies of the governor, registered several companies for the purpose of fraudulent acquisition of public funds through fictitious contracts,” says EACC in documents filed in court.
