Nandi governor Stephen Sang says that all police officers attached to his office and home have been withdrawn.

This comes as the outspoken Jubilee governor battles a court case for invading a tea estate.

Sang was arrested as police investigate him over the destruction of Kibwari tea estate, which is alleged to be on a grabbed piece of land.

Sought by police

The governor had led residents to the tea estate linked to former minister Henry Kosgey to forcefully clear the tea bushes.

Eldoret High Court Judge Stephen Githinji issued orders against the arrest of the governor.

The orders were sought by his lawyer Tom Ojienda and were issued against the Inspector General of Police, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, the Director of Public Prosecutions and the Attorney-General.
