It is more than clear that IGP Martin Okoth Ochola is critically ill having developed high blood pressure after hearing the shocking news of the death of his Deputy Gen Lokech.

Police has however come out to deny the allegations that their top boss is critically ill but verified the fact that Ochola’s sickness started immediately after getting the shocking news of the death of Gen Lokech.

Police also confirmed that Ochola is simply on a one week sick leave and will be back in office next week. Afande Fred Enanga revealed this information after the media pressured him to speak about the absence of his boss during a press conference in Naguru.

On Wednesday afternoon, reports circulated on social media claiming that Ochola who fell sick after the death of his, Deputy Lt Gen Paul Lokech last month had been taken to hospital where he is allegedly battling for his life and on oxygen.

Enanga said the public should disregard rumours but instead wait for the official Communication from him as the Institution’s mouthpiece.

” We do reiterate that the IGP is not hospitalized as claimed in certain media circles. He is in good condition, with a back to normal pressure level and has been working throughout the month of September,”Enanga said.

The police mouthpiece said whereas the police chief developed hypertension after the shocking news of the death of his deputy, he has since recuperated and resumed work (working from home).

Enanga also urged media personalities to always stick to credible, reliable, and factual sources of information that they relay to the public in form of news.
