An Embu court yesterday issued a warrant of arrest against an AP officer who gang raped a woman with his colleague. The court ordered the arrest of Richard Anondo who has failed to attend court continuosly.
Anondo and his colleague, Ahmed Amayo, are facing three charges of raping a 19-year-old woman at the Eastern provincial headquarters on April 12.
Prosecutor Frank Mnene told the court that Anondo has been skipping court since he was released on a Sh200,000 bond. Mnene asked Embu chief magistrate Margaret Wachira to issue the warrant against Anondo for forfeiting the bond.
The two allegedly waylaid the woman at the headquarter's gate and held her captive until darkness fell. One of them then drugged her to a grounded government vehicle where they took turns in raping her at gun point until midnight.
They then escorted her to a nearby church where they left her with warnings of dire consequences if she reported them. The case will be heard in January 15.
