The guards put up tight security measures at the entrance to the home with explicit instructions to bar journalists from entering.

Fearing that journalists would publicise details of the raid, the governor's aides were also on high alert to bar them access to the house.

"Inside the homestead, dozens of administration police officers dotted the compound and a number of people whom we learnt were close aides to Mr Obado were seated in strategic places, observing the happenings," one of the Daily Nation reporters explained.

EACC Involvement

Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) officials aided the governor's men by stating that they were under strict orders not to cooperate with journalists.

"There are orders form above tht journalists should not be allowd here," an EACC official conveyed.

The journalists were eventually kicked out of the compound by a man who identified himself as the head of Governor Obado's security team.

EACC South Nyanza director David Kang'ara who led the raid also refused to speak to reporters, referring them to the Nairobi office.

The authorities later revealed that they had found among other things, eight fire arms during the raid.
