Pastor Ezekiel Odero has been released by the Shanzu Law Courts on a Sh3 million bond or Sh1.5 million cash bail. The prosecution had earlier applied for his detention for 30 days, citing fresh affidavits in a case involving mass deaths.
However, Shanzu Senior Principal Magistrate Joe Omido denied the application by the State to continue holding him for 30 more days. Odero, who is the preacher of New Life Church and Prayer Centre, had already spent seven days in police custody at Port Police.
He has been ordered to report to a police station once a week or as required by the State.
