Part of JKIA shutdown
A heavy contingent of armed GSU officers are present at JKIA.
The lock down comes after the airport witnessed a long standoff from Monday between Self-declared National Resistance Movement General Miguna Miguna and the security officials.
Police cut off access to terminal two in the morning where Dr Miguna is locked with only Siaya Senator James Orengo has been granted access to see Miguna.
The impasse continued Tuesday morning after Miguna's lawyer Cliff Ombeta said his client will not fill the citizenship forms issued by the Immigration department.
Earlier, Acting Director of Immigration Services Joseph Munywoki said Miguna Miguna was asked to present his documents to facilitate his entry, but he became uncontrollable only giving his National Identity card.
General Service Unit Officers in full combat gear chased journalists out of JKIA hours after assaulting and injuring several media staff covering the Miguna standoff.
