A 23-year-old woman, who was recently kidnapped by unknown people in Kamukunji area, Nairobi, has been rescued by police.
Kahawa Tungu understands that Hafsa Mohamed Lukman was found abandoned and locked in a house in Matopeni area, Kayole, on Sunday.
Police who have been hunting for the criminals behind her abduction said she was alone in the house.
Hafsa was taken to a local police station to record a statement before being taken to hospital for check-up.
Hafsa went missing from her shoe shop in Kamukunji Trading Centre on Tuesday, June 15.
Her abductors demanded Sh5 million to release her.
On Wednesday afternoon, the abductors sent a disturbing video clip to Hafsa’s family indicating she was being tortured.
In the 35-second video, the woman was blindfolded with her hands and legs tied.
A distressed Hafsa pleaded with her family to send the ransom.
“Nimeshikwa na wanataka pesa, tafadhali mtume pesa (I have been kidnapped, and they’re demanding ransom. Please, send it),” she is heard saying.
