Relatives of the missing Isiolo trader who disappeared on Christmas Day while going home from work have accused security agencies of laxity in tracing the man.

Abduba Boru Waqo disappeared while heading to his Kulamawe home around 7:30 pm from his butchery in Isiolo town where he worked the entire day.

The family said the officers, who have been investigating the matter for three weeks, were not updating them on the progress of the probe despite reportedly promising to.

“They keep telling us they are still investigating. We are worried because his phone, that was occasionally switched on, has been off for over a week,” His eldest son Amos Waqo said.

The family suspect the 60-year-old businessman could have been seized by the government.

Their premise is based on circumstances surrounding his disappearance- after going missing, Mr Boru popularly known as Abuya phone was traced 273 kilometres away at Lang’ata in Nairobi the following morning.

Mr Waqo said the father could have been ferried to Nairobi the fateful evening and wondered how those who abducted him maneuvered through the roadblocks from Isiolo to Nairobi.

The businessman left the shop with over Sh30, 000 that they had cashed in from the business that day saying he was exhausted and needed to take some rest.

On arriving home few minutes past 8pm, Mr Waqo, who spent the entire day with the father at the butchery, was shocked to find that his father had not arrived home yet.

The family only holds onto faith hoping that their kin will be found safely and soonest.
