Comedian Eric Omondi has opened up on his encounter following his arrest after he staged protests near parliament buildings.

Omondi was arrested on Tuesday November 16 as he led a group of artists to the National Assembly to make demands that would revive the music industry.

Through an Instagram video, the comedian revealed that he was in custody for about three and a half hours. This was the first time that he was speaking about the incident.

Omondi said that he panicked when the Central Police Station OCS Johnson Lemuna  ordered his arrest and he was forcefully bundled into the police van.

“There were like seven men. They were trying to push me into the car and I knew it would be over if I got into the car. I was pushed and fell down but I don’t have a scratch on my body, I thank God,” Omondi narrated.

On reaching the police cells, he found about 10-12 Kenyans who had also been arrested by the police.

“They thought I had gone there to record, they didn’t know what was happening outside. I told them I have been arrested, they were laughing,’ he said.

“They brought some food, I could not eat at that moment, I was in panic, I didn’t have the appetite for obvious reasons,” he added.

According to Eric, that was the first time he was held in a police cell. He also disclosed that his father was also a policeman.
