Rashid will be charged with the murder of Jamal Mohammed and Mohammed Dhair Kheri.

Through lawyer Danstan Omari, Rashid argues that IPOA is not acting in good faith and have a bad motive in their decision as he has never been summoned to give his account on the allegations.
Omari filed the case at the Milimani law courts accompanied by several lawyers and the Eastleigh business community who all demanded freedom of Rashid from the case.

According to court records, on that fateful day, he was within Eastleigh area 1st Avenue when a signal was circulated over the police radio of an ongoing robbery at Amal Plaza within Eastleigh.
He immediately rushed to the scene of the robbery as part of his lawful duty to maintain law and order and came face to face with the armed robbers.
"That the petitioner and his colleagues had been trailing the robbers who on the same date of the incident had robbed several known persons,” reads court documents.
He says that he did not go alone as there were several other police officers who had heeded the signal at the scene of the robbery.
Rashid claims that the armed robbers who were about seven in number shot at them and members of the public and in a bid to protect lives, one robber who was carrying a homemade gun was gunned down in a heavy exchange of gunfire.
“One of the robbers upon realizing that he was cornered tried to snatch a firearm from a police officer. In the ensuing scuffle, he was also shot and neutralized,” he said.
He says that they recovered a homemade gun capable of firing, a Somali sword and knives which had been used in the robbery.
Rashid also claims that the night before the incident they had robbed AlNoor Guleed of his mobile phone and 200,000 shillings.
