Migori Governor Okoth Obado his co-accused Caspal Obiero and Michael Oyamo

Caspal Obiero and Michael Oyamo charged with murder of Sharon Otieno released on Ksh1 million cash bail each.

The two have been in jail since October when their co accussed Migori Governor Okoth Obado was released on a Ksh5 million cash bail and two sureties of a similar amount.  

High Court Judge Jessie Lesiit had ruled that Oyamo and Obiero would cause fear and anxiety among members of the public.

Security

She also cited security concerns as part of the reasons why the two will remain at the Industrial Area Remand Prison.

Justice Lessit said that the probability of the two skipping bail was high and therefore ordered that they be detained until the date of the trial. 

Obado alongside his personal assistant Michael Oyamo and Migori County Clerk Caspal Obiero are facing two murder charges.

Abduction

They are also accused of killing Sharon Otieno’s unborn child.

The case will be heard on between May 6-17 2019.
