Controversial blogger Edgar Obare has been arrested by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI). Controversial blogger Edgar Obare has been arrested by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI). In a message to his Instagram followers on July 30, the blogger said he was arrested in the morning while at home by 'very many' police officers writing: “As I said earlier I was summoned by the DCI. Today morning I was arrested by very many officers at my home. Now am headed to Nairobi. Thank you for your undying support.”
Edgar has been on the headlines on several occassions after he unearthed celebrity scandals over the past year. Five months ago, he got into a fiery exchange with comedian and radio host Jalang'o after he blew the lid on the boy's club. The blogger claimed that Jalang'o had threatened him.
“I’m sick and tired of fearing for my safety and everything for my safety and staying quiet, Yesterday Jalang’o calls me and asks can I come for a meeting at the DCI, I ask what it is about and he refuses to say. I tell him I have to think about it (I refuse to go without being given reason for the meeting) and he sounds angry and says will you come or should we just come for you,” shared Obare.
Jalang'o on the other hand laughed off the claims terming them malicious, false and geared towards soiling his reputation.
“A blogger wakes up and post that I called him and threatened him? That he meets me at DCI. I just laugh! From his screenshots there is someone working really hard to try and Tarnish my name, I will not even bother asking or following who you are who talks to blogger and lie to them about me, just Malice! Pure malice!” posted Jalang’o.
Edgar shot to fame when he revealed celebrity Terrence Creative's affair back in 2019. The blogger is popular for getting receipts (evidence) before he goes live with exposes. Terrence later came out to admit his affair and apologize to his wife.
