DCI Arrests Blogger Edgar Obare
Edgar Obare has allegedly been arrested, and is set to be charged for publishing false information by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI). According to reports, the controversial blogger is said to have recruited a young woman to blackmail a prominent governor. “In the case of outright blackmail by fraudsters who intend to benefit financially from prominent personalities, by tainting their images online and demanding money not to post ‘scandalous’ information about them, detectives have once again arrested serial fraudster Edgar Obare,” the DCI tweeted on Thursday.
The press statement said that Obare allegedly coached one Desy Oduor Achieng, his co-accused, to defame the governor of impregnating her in an attempt to extort KShs. 10 million from them. “Dejected that their plan wasn’t working, Obare took to his social media pages accusing the governor of impregnating a lady and failing to take responsibility. The supposedly pregnant lady wasn’t aware that, all along, he was taking screenshots of their conversations and her photos,” read the DCI statement.
“Detectives have since established that the lady isn’t pregnant as she had claimed. Further, the lady has said that she has never met the governor, adding that she had only been recruited by Obare to extort money from the governor”.
Both Obare and Achieng will face charges according to Section 23 of the Computer Misuse and Cybercrime Act. Netizens have since initiated an online campaign to have Obare freed through #FreeEdgarObare on Twitter.
The suspect who has had previous run-ins with the law for publishing false & malicious information regarding individuals and their families is once again a guest of the state. Detectives from the Cybercrime unit have uncovered an underworld network of criminals involving
