Below is the statement of the Law Society of Kenya President Isaac Okero;

I have received with alarm the news of the disappearance of advocate and LSK member Simon Lilan.

The LSK has been in communication with his family from whom we have learnt that Mr. Lilan was last seen on the 9th January, 2016 on which date he called me at 17:52hrs after calling and speaking to the Chair, LSK North Rift branch between 17:32hrs and 17:37hrs of the same date.

I am further informed the family has formally reported to the police his disappearance and remain very concerned for his safety.

I have spoken to the Inspector General of the National Police Service who has given his assurance that the police has received a missing person report and are looking for Mr. Lilan. I urge the police to carry out thorough investigations to locate Mr. Lilan and facilitate his safe return to his family.
