Okoth Obado denied bail for the third time.

Governor Obado who has been in police custody since September 27 has been denied bail for the third time.

The Migori County Governor will remain in remand until October 24 when High Court will rule on his bail pending the trial of Sharon Otieno murder .

The charge is that together with two others, Caspal Obiero and his aide Michael Oyamo murdered Sharon at Owado area in Rachuonyo sub-county, between September 3 to September 4.

Through his three lawyers Nicholas Ombija, Rogers Sagana, and Cliff Ombeta, he said he is ready to abide by any conditions set by the Court for admission to bail or bond.

"I will fully cooperate with the police or the prosecution and not pose any risk to the prosecution witnesses, victims or co-accused when released on bond or bail pending trial," Mr. Obado said.

The lawyers asked the court to set them free maintaining that the state had failed to give compelling reasons for continuing to keep them in police custody.

Together with the co-accused persons, Governor Obado will remain in custody until October 24 when High Court will give ruling on bond, Lady Justice Jessie Lessit has ruled.
