The 55-year-old was allegedly kidnapped by four men who bundled him into a double cabin car registered as KCW 341Y, Citizen TV reported.
Abdiwahab’s family, based in Nairobi’s South C area, are in distress over their missing kin.
“We went to the Central Police Station, together with officers we went to the scene where he was taken and up to now we don’t have any information on where he has been taken,” his sister narrated.
The victim’s wife, Halima Mohammed, wondered why her husband was abducted, yet he had no known enemies.
Haki Africa, a human rights organisation, has said it would file a petition in court to compel the police to search for him and bring him dead or alive.
“They have a duty to search for him and to ensure he is reunited with his family, the group said.
US warns its citizens
In August, the United States warned its citizens against travelling to Kenya, citing the country’s surge in insecurity incidents.
The superpower country also cautioned its citizens against travelling to the Kenya-Somalia border over the terrorism risk.
It further implored its citizens to be extra careful, especially at night, when travelling to Nairobi’s Kibra and Eastleigh due to increased kidnappings and crime rates.
The country regretted that the Kenya police did not have the capacity to effectively respond to serious crime and terrorist attacks.
It also noted that Kenya had limited emergency fire and medical services.
