A family in Kisauni within Mombasa County has asked the Police to help locate their loved one who was abducted on Friday.
The father of the 18 year old Husni Mbarack, Mbarack Khalid said on Saturday that the family was in agony and could not clearly understand the circumstances under which their son was abducted.
Mr. Khalid said that his son has never been involved in any criminal activities and he has been very obedient.
Husni was walking along Sapphire hotel in Majengo after attending Friday prayers at a nearby mosque when he was abducted by four unknown people who later vanished with him in a car.
“We have reported the matter to Central police station for assistance, the incident has sent the whole family in a panic mood,” added Mr. Khalid.
On his part, Haki Africa Executive Director Hussein Khalid condemned the incident and asked the police to help the family locate their loved one.
Khalid said that the re-emergence of such cases in Mombasa, Malindi and Lamu were worrying and that police should investigate and net the gangs which have been abducting locals.
He said that the incident has sent Muslim faithful in panic especially during the holy month of Ramadan.
“We will not allow such incidences to happen in this County we urge security agents to quickly launch investigations and save the life of Husni Mbarack,” added Mr. Khalid.
While addressing the same press conference held at Haki Africa offices in Mombasa on Saturday, Mvita Member of Parliament Abdulswamad Sharif Nassir and Mombasa County Senator Mohammed Faki also appealed to the police to do whatever it takes to quell such situation which has instilled fear among Muslim faithful during the holy month of Ramadan.
