16 Coastal Residence Who Went Missing Last Year (2017) Were Killed By Police - Haki Africa

A Mombasa based NGO Haki Africa has come up with allegations that majority of the coastal residence who went missing last year were killed by police officers.

The Human rights body cited that last year alone almost 16 coastal residence went missing and that the number of extra judicial killings hiked that year.

“Although there are many other cases that Haki Africa heard, they were not included in the report as their authenticity or veracity could not be confirmed,” states the report that reviews the year 2017.

Reached for comment on the killings, Coast regional commander Larry King said he had not seen the contents of the report but that some of the people who were killed were armed and wanted criminals.

Among those listed in the report areLamu based Fareed Omar Awal- a wanted terror suspect - and Fatma Mohamed, who had been missing for about a month before they were found dead.

Their bodies, which were found in Naivasha on April 16, had strangulation marks and acid had been poured on them.

Mohamed Ibrahim Shee, Babu Mustafa Sheti, Juma Abdalla Musa were shot dead by police on May 17.
