Njeri went missing on Thursday last week shortly after she went to record a statement at the DCI headquarters in Nairobi on Kiambu Road.
On Tuesday morning, Njeri resurfaced at the high court in Mombasa days after she allegedly went missing after recording a statement at the DCI headquarters on Kiambu Road, on Thursday last week.
She said she visited the sleuths on the advice of Energy CS Davis Chirchir after a dispute emerged over the ownership of the Sh17 billion oil.
“I was waiting for my import permit and went to see CS Chirchir who told me the fuel was not mine but belonged to a firm called Galana. I told him I had not signed any deal with Galana, so the cargo was mine. He advised me to go to DCI to record a statement,” she said.
Njeri had showed up at the court in the company of her lawyer Cliff Ombeta for the mention of a case she had earlier filed on November 8.
She claims she said she was blindfolded and dumped at Nyayo Estate in Nairobi by people she claimed were masked state officers after being questioned and held overnight.
“I told them the petroleum is mine and I have all the documents. They then told me they did not see any wrong and that the petroleum was indeed mine,” she said.
“They then dumped me at Nyayo Estate.”
Njeri had gotten High Court orders from Justice Magare Kizito barring the Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) and Kenya Pipeline from offloading the said fuel.
However, KPA issued a statement disowning the businesswoman as the owner of the said fuel. She has today appeared before Justice Ann Ong’injo seeking directions on the said case.
Galana Energies has filed a response claiming they are the real owners of the fuel and are legally contracted by the government to import fuel products.
