Omar Dida, the father of the abducted officer, told the media on Wednesday (September 14th) that his son had been abducted the day he left his home in Laisamis, Marsabit County.

“Home Secretary Dr. Fred Matiang must explain what happened and make sure that the my son is released,” said the father of the abducted officer.

“The officer left his home at 5pm and was on his way to Nairobi but was abducted four hours after arriving on Thika Road,” said Omar Dida, the abducted officer’s father.

Dida added that when he arrived on the Thika highway, a black car sped off and overturned in front of him.
