Controversial blogger Edgar Obare has taken to social media to reveal that he is alive at the same time narrated his kidnapping ordeal.
The blogger was missing for the better part of Monday after he was allegedly arrested by mysterious people outside the Kiambu Law Courts.
On Monday, blogger Xtian Dela shared on Instagram that Edgar had been arrested outside Kiambu Law courts.
“Breaking: Edgar Obare arrested at Kiambu Law courts as he was attending a mention of his case against Natalie Tewa. His phone confiscated and whereabouts unknown. His family and his lawyer don’t know where he has been taken. The police have refused to say where he has been taken.” Xtian wrote
Xtian further said that no branch of authority claimed responsibility for Edgar’s arrest.
In a statement issued via his Insta stories, Obare said that he was driven around by gun-wielding men while blindfolded and handcuffed.
The blogger narrated how the men kept asking him questions about his sources and if he had been paid to tarnish reputations.
“I had a court a case on November 2nd. It was meant to be virtual but it was changed last minute. I arrived at 10:00 am and saw my lawyer outside eating smokies as I was going to say hi to him, three plainly dressed men approached me and asked for my name. The quickly whisked me by my pant to a waiting car. I demanded to know who they were and where they were taking me and refusing to answer they only said to a nearby police station. In the car, they put handcuffs on me and they were getting tight, I asked the guy on my left to loosen them and he refused. He asked that I unlock my phone and that I should co-operate but I refused.” He said
Obare further added that the kidnappers put a hood on his face but he was able to see a bit. He added that at one point the kidnappers stopped at some school and changed cars.
He narrated how he was driven for a while before the guys gave him some water which had been asking for but it tasted funny.
He was then stripped naked and the guys took photos of his manhood before throwing him in a thorny thicket.
Obare said he struggled to cut the rope from his hand and find a way to the nearby road where a good Samaritan took him to his house, gave him clothes and some food before helping him find his way back to Nairobi.
