Police at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on Thursday lobbied teargas to ex-mungiki leader Maina Njenga supporters outside the headquarters along Kiambu road.
Njenga, whose whereabouts had been questioned earlier in the week by investigators, presented himself at the offices on Thursday.
The ex-leader’s supporters showed up at the DCI headquarters, chanting ‘Chairman’, wanting to see him.
‘Tunataka Chairman akuje,” the crowd shouted.
However, as they approached the DCI gate, the police lobbed tear gas to disperse them.
Njenga was accompanied by his lawyer Ndegwa Njiru when he presented himself at the Nakuru Law Courts on Wednesday.
He later went to the Nakuru County Directorate of Criminal Investigation offices to record a statement where he was told to go to the DCI headquarters in Nairobi, Thursday.
