A senior police officer accused of concealing evidence in a case involving the murder of a Nairobi businessman in Watamu in 2015 wants the DPP to consider his fresh evidence.

Sergeant Abdi Sheikh, who was the investigating officer in the case involving the murder of Jimmy Baburam, yesterday sought an adjournment to give him time to produce more detailed evidence.

Paddy Cheloti, Sheikh’s lawyer, said the accused will write a letter to the DPP. He said Sheikh was not the investigating officer.

Abdi was charged alongside American fugitive Jacob Schmalze and Baburam’s widow Amina Shiraz, who is accused of killing her husband.

The accused are facing three charges of conspiracy to defeat justice. Malindi courts chief magistrate Julie Oseko is handling the case.

The conspiracy was committed between July 26 and September 28, 2015.

Shiraz and Schmalze are accused of murdering Baburam in a suspected love triangle while on a family holiday on July 26, 2015 at Medina Palms resort in Watamu. Baburam was drowned.
