A special team of detectives launched his manhunt. However, his disappearance was short lived since the DCI anonymous call centre, received a tip-off on his whereabouts from a concerned member of the public and pounced on him.” Said DCI
It has since been established that Swabir Abdulrazaq Mohamed tortured the man after he was allegedly caught trespassing the factory’s premise using a mosquito net without stopping even after the man pleaded with him.
“Detectives have since established that Abdulrazaq tortured the victim, for allegedly trespassing into the factory’s premises. Using a burning mosquito net, Abdulrazaq subjected the victim to untold anguish by burning him using the flaming drops of the net as he whipped him using a plastic pipe.
The victim, whose hands were tied and neck secured on an electricity pole using a rope, wailed in despair as he begged for mercy, from the visibly happy tormentor. All this happened as curious onlookers milled around appearing helpless.” Said DCI
In his defense, the guard said that he reported the matter and even handed the man to two police officers who he has failed to identify. Investigations have revealed that nothing of that sort happened.
“As some recorded the despicable scene using their phones. The victim who is yet to be identified, is said to be a street urchin who ekes his living through seeking alms in the streets of Mombasa.
Abdulrazaq alleges to have handed over the victim to two Police Officers whom he cannot identify or remember the Police Stations where they are attached. However, we have since established that no such report was filled in any Police Station within Mombasa on the material day.
Further, in the victim’s state, there isn’t a Police Station that would have booked him before he was treated. Detectives are currently looking for the victim to file his statement.
Meanwhile, the suspect will be arraigned in court tomorrow to answer to charges of grievous harm, with charges of attempted murder also being considered.” Said DCI
