Blogger Edgar Obare is being held by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) over fraud and extortion claims.

The DCI said Obare and his co-accused Desy Oduor Achieng had been coached how to stalk a prominent governor with the hope of extorting Sh10 million from him.

DCI boss George Kinoti said Obare had shared the governor’s number with Desy and instructed her to tell him that she was pregnant with his child and that she would tell the whole world about their little secret.

“Detectives from the Cybercrime unit have uncovered an underworld network of criminals involving young ladies recruited by Obare, to stalk prominent personalities in political, business and religious circles for monetary exploitation. The ladies are then coached by Obare, on how to ensnare the victims into their traps then extort unimaginable sums of money from them,” said the DCI.

In the Wednesday case facing the Obare, one Desy Oduor Achieng (his co-accused) was reportedly coached on how to stalk a prominent governor with the hope of extorting Ksh.10 million from him.

Obare is said to have shared the governor’s number with her and instructed her to tell him that she was pregnant with his child and that she would tell the whole world about their ‘secret’.

“When the governor did not respond, she was instructed to threaten him that she would share photos that they had allegedly taken in compromising situations but the governor did not respond,” the DCI said on Twitter.
