Acquitted Westgate Terror Suspect Reportedly Abducted in Broad Day Light Outside Government Office

Acquitted Westgate terror suspected has been abducted just a day after he was set free.

The Star reported that Liban Abdillahi Omar, who was set free on Wednesday, October 7, was reported whisked away by unknown gunmen in what looked like abduction on Thursday morning.

According to reports, the incident happened minutes after Omar left ATPU headquarters in Upper Hill where he was cleared to go home.

Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi cleared Omar of Westgate terror attack charges saying that there was no evidence to connect him to his brother who was one of the terrorists who executed the deadly attack.

Omar is said to be in the company of his sisters when the gunmen who were driving in a Subaru took him.

The incident took place near KCB Towers.

Lobby Muslim for Human Rights (Muhuri) has however pointed a finger of accusation at the police.

Muhuri chairman Khelef Khalifa condemned the police saying that re-arresting a person after the court gives its verdict is disrespect court orders.

“If the police are not satisfied with the ruling they should appeal and follow the laid down processes,” he said.
