A Nairobi family is in distress after their kin disappeared under mysterious circumstances.
Abdiwahab Sheikh Abdisamad, the executive director of the Institute for Horn of Africa Strategic Studies, was last seen in Nairobi on Wednesday.
It is alleged that Abdisamad, who also serves as an analyst at Southlink Consultants, was picked by four men along Tubman Road in Nairobi CBD and was bundled into a vehicle. In the car was allegedly a fifth man waiting.
“Eyewitnesses report that he was picked by four men and forced into a white double-cabin pick-up registration number KCW 341Y at around 10 on Tubman Road, Nairobi,” read part of the missing person alert.
His family filed a missing person’s report at the Central and Akila police stations. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is requested to contact his wife or human rights group Haki Africa.
The 55-year-old is also a seasonal writer with the Nation newspaper.
