AFC Leopards players on Wednesday 21st April jumped over the fence to escape a police drug net at Camp Toyoyo Grounds in Jericho, Nairobi.

The players were allegedly caught defying Covid -19 protocols at the Camp Toyoyo training grounds.

The police operation however saw three AFC Leopards officials and Camp Toyoyo Staff in Jericho arrested.

The players who scaled the perimeter walls were reportedly conducting their training session with the AFC team at the Famous Jericho Grounds.

The arrested individuals were taken to the Jogoo Police Station along Jogoo Road.

The officials were however released on bond and will be arraigned in court on Friday.

Efforts to contact the management were futile. AFC Chairman Dan Shikanda did not pick his calls.

The Government suspended sports in March following the surge of the third wave of Covid- 19.

Kenya President Uhuru Kenyatta said the county had 4,380 confirmed COVID-19 cases on January 20, but that the figure had surged to 15,916 on March 22.

He warned that Kenya was facing a third wave of COVID-19, with the rate of infection having risen from 2.6 per cent in January up to around 22 per cent.


Kenyatta announced new lockdown measures with a particular focus on high-risks areas, including the capital city Nairobi, as well as Kajiado, Machakos, Nakuru and Kiambu.

The new measures included the suspension of all sporting activities .

Before the suspension of the league Tusker was at the top of the table with 36 points from 16 games, six points ahead of second-placed KCB and seven points more than AFC Leopards.
