Governor Sonko is accused of assaulting Coast Police Commander Rashid Yakub and resisting arrest on the fateful day.

He was however arrested and taken into a waiting police helicopter before he was flown to Nairobi’ Wilson airport.

His absense in Voi caused the judge in charge to postpone the hearing to a letter day when the Governor is ready to take a plea.

Since his arrest, Sonko was hospitalized before appearing for a bail hearing when he was granted a Ksh 15 million cash bail.
