MORE DETAILS OF GABRIEL OGUDA ABDUCTION EMERGE IN PARLIAMENT

National Assembly Minority Leader Opiyo Wandayi has told Parliament more details about the abduction of social media activist Gabriel Oguda by suspected policemen.

Oguda, a political analyst at the minority leader’s office, was taken from his home around 2 a.m. by five suspected policemen.

His abduction is believed to be in connection to his outspoken Anti-Finance Bill stance.

Wandayi shared that Oguda called him early Tuesday morning.

“He said there were cops at his gate trying to break into his compound. I tried to get lawyers to handle the situation but 10 minutes later, my phone calls were jammed,” Wandayi told the House.

“I was unable to make or receive phone calls until 6:30 a.m. They broke into his compound, broke his house’s door and abducted him. We do not know his whereabouts and don’t take it lightly.”

The minority leader said they searched for Oguda “in all police stations in Nairobi” but had not found him.

“We don’t know whether they killed him or if they are holding him incommunicado somewhere,” he said.

Ichung’wah Responds to Gabriel Oguda Abduction

Majority Leader Kimani Ichungw’ah advised Wandayi to contact the Inspector General of Police before assuming Oguda’s abduction, stressing the importance of confirming if the abductors were police officers

“When this government took over power in 2022, President William Ruto stated that the days of kidnappings, abductions, and extrajudicial killings are long gone. I assure Kenyans that it shall never happen in this country again,” said Ichungw’ah.

However, Ichungw’ah maintained that parliamentarians and staff are not above the law.

“If myself and Opiyo run into problems with the law, it will take its course; we must be arrested and produced in court,” he said.

Beside Gabriel Oguda, seven other anti-Finance Bill activists have been abducted by statesmen.

They include, John Frank Githiaka alias Franje, Drey Mwangi, Osama Otero, TemperCR7, Harriet, Worldsmith, and Hilla254.
