Isiolo family in agony over missing kin

Thursday, July 09, 2015

A family in Isiolo is still in agony following the disappearance of their kin weeks ago.

Thirty-two-year-old businessman Mohammed Sheikh Abdullahi was kidnapped by unknown people while heading to Isiolo from Meru on June 23.

Mr Abdullahi’s family is appealing to President Uhuru Kenyatta to intervene to ensure the businessman is found.

Although the Kenya Wildlife Service has vehemently denied its officers were involved in the kidnap, the family still points an accusing finger on them or Abdullahi’s business rivals.

A relative, Mr Mohammed Nura, said the search for their kin in mortuaries and hospitals for the last 16 days were futile.

Abdullahi is a father of four children and is married to two wives. He has also been supporting a number of orphans.


Mr Nura said relatives who were in the company of their lost kin witnessed his kidnap at around 4.00pm but did not report immediately since they were robbed off their phones and their national identification cards.

He said nothing more was stolen during the incident prompting the relatives to suspect that the “kidnappers were not thieves and had other intentions.”

The family added that Mr Abdullahi was its bread winner

The relatives claimed that the kidnapped kin was a genuine businessman and a prominent contractor who owns a shop in Isiolo town.

Mr Nura also revealed that the relatives identified the number plate of a Silver Subaru vehicle, which the kidnappers were using.
