Is Obado preparing for a military attack? Mercenary guns discovered at his homes.

Obado has been the most controversial politicians in the few months. From alleged Sharon’s murder case to now the looming corruption cases in the county of Migori.

Maybe the prayer he requested from the people was a doom. The christian religion would say the wrath of God has strike Obado. Or rather Obado is an outcast.

Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) detectives Tuesday raided the office and homes of Migori Governor Okoth Obado and confiscated, among other things, eight firearms, several bank statements and electronics.

Five of the firearms were recovered in Nairobi while sources within EACC said they recovered another three in Migori.

The detectives pounced at dawn, and spent hours rummaging through documents that could help in their investigations into alleged misappropriation of Sh2 billion in Migori County.

The Firearms Act is silent on the number of pistols a licensed civilian should own, but is specific on the type of firearms to be licensed for.

The team of about 60 officers from Nairobi and Kisii, accompanied by heavily armed security personnel, was earlier in the day at the county government offices, where a similar operation was carried out.

The county boss is accused of using proxies, among them his relatives, to siphon Sh2 billion from the coffers of the county government, according to an affidavit filed in court by the anti-corruption watchdog.

The detectives turned upside down the office of the county chief and carted away several documents they believed would help them to nail the governor.

Security officers deployed at the home watched from a distance as EACC team took charge of the palatial home for several hours.

Mr Obado was, however, away at his Lavington home in Nairobi, where other detectives were also looking for clues.

Only officers from the EACC were allowed into the Rapogi home which the governor moved from immediately he returned to Migori from Industrial Area Remand Prison where he had been remanded.

Mr Obado, who is accused of the murder of his girlfriend Sharon Otieno, is out on a Sh5 million bail.

EACC investigators are said to be finalising their graft investigations before taking suspects to court.

β€œThe 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,” sources from EACC revealed.
