15 People Abducted At Gunpoint In Central Kenya

Over the past three months, people have been going missing at a very alarming rate in Central Kenya. This happens as Nyeri, Meru, Laikipia and Nyandarua counties emerge among the most affected. It is said that most of these abductions would happen in broad daylight where people were abducted at gunpoint.

According to the source, it is said that some of the abductors presented themselves as police officers before doing the act. The increased gun ownership has really contributed in this putting a major blame to the government. However, the government has disowned claims of linkage into the abductions happening across the country.

Most of those abducted are linked with certain land issues where powerful people in the Government collide with them over land issues. Details reveal that most of those abducted were taken in broad daylight from their firms by people who pretended to be policemen.

Among those abducted, we have the following;

John Mwiti, Mr Isaac, Wilson Mwangi, Elijah Karimi,  Nyeri businessman Gerald Guandaru, Samuel Ngacha, Bernard Wanjohi, Peterson Mutwiri, Peter Mugweru, Patrick Maina and KWS officer Francis Isaack Oyaro.
