Edgar Obare almost died in the hands of kidnappers, who he says were police officers. It all started when he went for a hearing of a pending case at the Kiambu Law Courts. Upon arriving, he was whisked away by men dressed in plain clothes.
They told him that they were taking him to a nearby police station. Things turned rough when they put a mask on him, and started torturing him. Edgar was stripped naked, and the men took nude photos of him with their phones.
They questioned him on why he has been exposing an unnamed celebrity from Kisumu for cheating. They also asked him about why he was tormenting the likes of DJ Mo, Size 8, Jalang’o and other celebrities.
The gang then proceeded to dump him in a thorny bush, with the men having made stops to change number plates and cars. That is how he survived, having undergone a thorough beating, denied food and given drugged water. Edgar narrated that he got rescued by a good samaritan who gave him clothes, food and shelter.
"When I got home, I took pictures of my injuries, and this is how I was tied up. They confiscated everything I had on me, let the authorities stop denying they did this to me and protecting each other. The state kidnapped me and threw me in the bush. I demand justice #endpolicebrutality 😖😭", he posted on Instagram.
Edgar was warned that if he continues blogging, he would get killed.
