A family in Ol Joro Orok is living in fear after a 42-year-old man was abducted six days ago.
Johnson Kinyua was kidnapped near Suera Service Station along the Nyahururu-Ol-Kalou road.
Mr Kinyua was in the company of his father, brother, son and another passenger at the time, his wife Esther Wanjiku said.
Nyandarua North DCIO Kavete Kulova said that the victim has in the recent past been abducted in a similar manner by officers from the Kenya Wildlife Service who suspected he was a poacher.
Ms Wanjiku said the family was travelling from Muruguru in Nyeri where they had gone to visit their ailing aunt, only to be kidnapped on their way back home.
She recounted how their vehicle was stopped by a personal car.
Three men emerged claiming the victim was an Al Qaeda suspect.
“They were asked to produce their identity cards and after checking they whisked away Kinyua and bundled him into the car before driving away.
“They did not even introduce themselves,” she said.
She said that they drove to Ol Joro Orok Police Station where they reported the matter.
Wanjiku has received calls from the abductors demanding a ransom.
