Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations have arrested a key suspect linked to the abduction of a woman along Likoni Road in Nairobi.
The arrest of Abdullahi Mohamed Guled follows an intense search by the detectives after a missing person report was made at Industrial area police station by a taxi driver on October 12, 2023.
The Victim, Shakara Adan Hassan was heading to JKIA from Eastleigh when the taxi she was travelling in was stopped by a driver of another vehicle that was trailing them and upon stopping, two occupants from the said vehicle while posing as police officers ordered Shakara to board their vehicle and head to Shauri Moyo police station for interrogation leaving the taxi driver at the scene.
Preliminary investigations revealed that the said individuals were not police officers and the victim had not been booked at any police station within Nairobi region.
