Speaking on Sunday during Azimio rally at Kamkunji grounds, Raila alleged that Gachagua sent police officers who he claimed fired eleven bullets at his car during mass protests on March 27 and 30.
"Gachagua is an accused person, this coming week, we are taking his name to ICC, he said that he wanted to finish me once and for all," Raila said.
The ODM leader said that the civilian officers first lobbed teargas at his car during protests, and when he ducked to avoid being hit, bullets were fired.
"We are taking Gachagua to the Hague, with all the other officers, we have all their names, the officers are being used by the State," Raila stated.
On April 14, Azimio wrote to International Criminal Court asking the court to open investigations into the political situation in Kenya.
In a letter to the Dutch-based Court, Lawyer Paul Mwangi cited nine issues including targeted attacks on protesters.
It was submitted in accordance with Regulation 25 of the Regulation of the Office of the Prosecutor.
The lawyer also listed eight local journalists who he said were injured during the March 27 protests and nine protesters who he said were killed by police during the protests.
He also noted in the letter to the ICC that 20 other protesters were injured.
Raila has twice claimed that police attempted to kill him during Azimio protests.
He first made the claim on March 21 where he said his car and that of Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka were shot at on Monday, March 20 but they escaped unharmed.
"There was an attempt on the lives of both Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka. Their cars were shot at but luckily, they were unharmed. We remain horrified and disgusted by the response of the police," he said.
Raila also claimed his vehicle was shot at seven times during mass protests on March 30.
"There's no justification for the excessive force used against peaceful unarmed citizens exercising their democratic rights today. The unprovoked attack left my car hit with 7 live bullets, each aimed at me," he said.
