His arrest was confirmed by Kilimani OCPD Peter Kattam and numerous photos doing rounds on social media. According to a report(OB/9/31/12/2016) made at Kilimani police station, the incident happened last Friday when Mr Obure threatened to shoot a man at the Kilimani based wet hole. Mr Obure had double-packed his black Range Rover, blocking other revelers .All hell broke loose when he was called to move his car.

Instead of moving his car, irate Obure drew his gun and threatened to shoot two revelers who were at the scene. The businessman went ahead to smash the driver’s window of a silver Volkswagen Passat.

Barely 2 months ago, Obure was in yet another gun drama after he threatened to shoot Mr Alex Lwin at Klub House in Parklands but no action was taken against him.
