Amin reiterated that there were no officers deployed to arrest the former Interior CS at his residence or anywhere else as claimed.

The DCI stated preliminary investigations into the Wednesday night incident revealed that there was a well-coordinated and deliberate attempt to spread false information and incite public fear.

According to the DCI's investigation, activity began building up at Dr. Matiang'i's home on Wednesday, February, 8 at 8:00 pm.

Matiang'i informed his guards that he was expecting lawyers and instructed them to grant access to his home upon their arrival.

After a meeting inside the house with the lawyers and politicians led by the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, the lawyers drove off and left three cars in the compound.

The communication team attached to Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga then alerted newsrooms that the former CS's home was surrounded by an elite squad of police.

The DCI accused the former CS of spreading false information, adding that action will be taken against all those involved in the matter.

Matiangi's lawyers have already obtained an anticipatory bail to prevent the arrest of the the former government official.

According to a report by KTN News, High Court Judge Kanyi Kimondo allowed Matiang’i to deposit Sh200,000 as anticipatory bail.
