Police officers staged in Shakahola forest have died Azimio Leader Raila Odinga's entry into the controversial mass graves.
The ODM leader was in the company of local leaders, Malindi MP Amina Mnyazi and Kilifi Woman Representative Gertrude Mbeyu who were both requested to seek permission from the inspector general before entry.
The commander termed the mass graves a 'crime scene' that demands protection from interference or else restricted entry would tamper with the evidence.
“I want to access the forest so that I can be able to see the graves, I can't travel all the way and go back without seeing the scene,” Raila demanded.
Mnyanzi challenged police efforts to bar them from accessing the forest.
Police have exhumed more than 100 bodies from the forest leading to CS Kithure Kindiki's declaration of the place as an operation zone.
