High Court Judge, Justice Anthony Mrima in the ruling said the evidence in the Sh17. 5 million extortion case involving Victoria Commercial Bank, was inadmissible before the court.

In the case, Nyakundi and his co-accused Emmanuel Nyamweya are alleged to have received a down payment of Sh1 million, in order to pull down defamatory information published on their website.

Cyprian Nyakundi and his co-accused were arrested in 2020 and the said money which would be used as evidence was recovered following investigations.
