Police in Kisumu have been given an ultimatum to arrest officials of a boda boda group that killed a rider last evening as the number rises to two.

One of the six riders who were admitted at Jaramogi Oginga Oginga Teaching and Referral Hospital passed away at noon.

Kondele MCA Joachim Oketch says police officers must now move fast and ensure the perpetrators of the attack are arrested.

Oketch says boda boda riders will only have peace of doing their business once the killers are arrested.

The MCA now says only police officers are allowed to enforce law and should not apportion that responsibility to another group.

He termed the group as militia saying they have been a thorn in the flesh of motorcyclist.

Stephen Nyakala, a victim of last evening attack says he lost his motorcycle to the group.

Nyakala was carrying two passengers when he was stopped by the CBO team and asked why he is going against the government order.

He was ordered out of the cycle as they drove towards their office when a fight ensued.

Nyakala called for a back up then a fight ensued where he was hurt with crude weapons.

Residents of Manyatta led by Elvis Omondi are now calling upon the police to bring sanity in the boda boda sector.

Omondi says very innocent residents have been called unnecessary for the last one year.

Contacted, Kisumu OCPD Ancent Kaloki says they are compiling a report over the matter and will issue a comprehensive statement to the press later.
