Somali scholar Abdiwahab found after over 10 days of internment

NAIROBI (SD) – Haki Africa, a human rights organization based in Mombasa which was following the disappearance of Abdiwahab Sheikh Abdisemed on Sunday confirmed that the regional analyst was found alive.

Abdiwahab went missing on September 8 from Nairobi’s city centre.

The four wrestled him to the ground before cuffing his hands. They then bundled him into a double cabin pick-up truck they were using.

The vehicle that was used according to eye witnesses was a white double cabin pick up registration number KCW 341Y.

In a brief statement, Haki Africa said “Abidwahab is now with his family, more information to be shared by his family in due course.”

The news was also confirmed by Farah Maalim, the former Deputy Speaker of Kenya’s parliament and former Lagdera MP who previously pleaded with President Uhuru Kenyatta to ‘order the release’ of political analyst Abdiwahab.

Previously, Maalim’s remarks claiming that Kenyan Security forces had kidnaped Abdiwahab added similar allegations by senior Somali politicians in Kenya who have linked Kenyan security forces with the kidnap of Abdiwahab.  

It is not yet clear motive behind the abduction of the scholar and who were his kidnappers.
