Kisumu’s Central Police station has issued an arrest warrant for popular Luo Benga musician John Junior after he and 2 of his aides tried to assault a woman in Kisumu on Thursday morning. The woman who is daughter to a leading journalist is now traumatised and scared after the ordeal.

The musician who was just from performing at Club Signature (Benga show sponsored by Radio Maisha) was accompanied by one bodyguard and one of his friend when he and his two colleagues tried to sexually assault the woman in a car around Aga Khan mosque in Kisumu. The woman fought very hard and managed to scare the attackers who later dumped her on the road and sped off.

The case has been reported to Kisumu’s central police station where the investigating officer is one Peter Otieno Omollo. The OB record for the case is 4-30/10/2014. It was reported around 5AM on Thursday 30th October.

Efforts by the woman to have action taken on the musician has not borne any fruit as the investigating officer is telling the woman that he will even arrest John Junior after 3 months and not when she wants. The woman was injured on her private parts and the P3 and X-ray reports indicate the same.

Will the police take action on John Junior? We hope so.
