According to Police Spokesman Charles Owino, the officer was scheduled to appear in court on Thursday.

Saviour shot dead at Mama Lucy Hospital

The officer was arrested on Wednesday night after a ballistics investigation linked the killer bullet to his firearm.

According to witnesses, the officer shot the boda boda rider after a confrontation over paring his motorcycle inside the hospital.

Witnesses narrated that the rider had been allowed to enter in his boda boda by security guards at the gate because he had ferried a child and her mother to the facility for emergency medical help.

The child is said to have been saved from drowning in Korogocho where Daniel offered to rush the two to hospital for the girl to be checked.

The incident sparked protests among patients at the facility leading to running battles with police.
