Former Mungiki Leader Maina Njenga was released yesterday by his abductors after spending 24 hours with them at 10:15 p.m.

Njenga was dumped in Limuru, Kiambu County and offered fare home after being warned not to say anything about his ordeal.

According to his lawyer, Ndegwa Njiru, he took a motorbike to his Banana home where he had been picked up by his abductors on Saturday night.

“Client Maina Njenga finally released by the rogue police hit squad after our press conference,” he said.

Additionally, his brother, Njoroge Kamunya also confirmed Njenga had been released.

This comes hours after Azimio La Umoja coalition said Njenga was taken by rogue police officers who did not identify themselves and demanded for his release.

“The abductors were therefore easily part of the Special Support Unit that terrorized Kenyans during the anti-tax protests. The SSU is therefore very much alive, active and determined to intimidate and even harm Kenyans,” Azimio said in statement ion Sunday.

However, police are yet to comment on the issue.

His abduction happened in Banana area, Kiambu on Saturday night.

The motive of the incident is yet to be disclosed.
