City lawyer Mr Soyinka arrested at the Thika road when he was visiting his farm. However, the farm is within Nairobi Metropolitan Service.

Mr Soyinka Lempaa was driving to his farm in Kiahuria together with his brother and cousin.

They were barricaded from accessing the farm, a confrontation between the officers and Mr. Lempaa arisen and he was arrested.

According to Law Society Officials, he has been supervising a project at his farm and he has been going there even after the cessation of movement within Nairobi Metropolitan was issued by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Mr Lempaa says Kiahuria, where his farm is located, is with Nairobi Metropolitan and there was no reason of restricting him from accessing the farm yet they have been allowing him through.

“Since the lockdown was announced at the metropolitan we have been coming here but today they refused to allow us through,” Mr Lempaa said on phone. “I need to understand what had changed from my last visit as they would always allow us through. Plus, other people were allowed through the roadblock at Ndarugo,” Lempaa added.

Following the argument with the police, he was injured on the face.

He was taken to Juja Police Station and charged with obstruction, resisting arrest and disobeying executive orders.

The lawyer was later released on Sh 10,000 cash bail and he is required to appear before Chief Magistrate court in Thika on May, 22, 2020.
