OYAMO and OBIERO ask Justice LESSIT why she granted OBADO bail and left them in jail

Friday November 30, 2018 – Murder suspects, Michael
Oyamo and Caleb Obiero, have accused High Court Judge, Justice Jessie Lessit of
discrimination when she granted their co-accused Migori Governor, Okoth Obado, bail
to the tune of Sh 5 million.
Oyamo, Obiero and Obado are accused of killing University of Rongo
student, Sharon Otieno, in August.
The three were arrested at the same time but Justice Lessit released the Governor
on bail last month.
Through their lawyer, Mrs June Ashioya, the suspects argued that Justice
Lessit “erred and misdirected herself” when she denied them bail hence denying
them their right and fundamental freedoms.
When she released Obado, Justice Lessit said evidence against him was
circumstantial and not enough to deny him bail.

When she was killed, Sharon was 7 months pregnant with Obado’s child.

Sources said she was killed after she refused to procure an
abortion.
