Mohamed referred to him as Koech and confided to his wife that he has been following him and he should be held responsible for whatever that may befell him.
In a sworn affidavit, Mariam stated that her husband further confided to her that the KWS man was unhappy since Mohamed was alleged hindrance in their work, which was, being a standing surety for his uncle Ibrahim Abdi who was facing a charge of possessing an elephant tusk.
Mariam claims that after the incident when her husband was abducted in June 23, they were able to track Koech’s phone line and confirmed his official name as Daniel Korir.
Mariam claims that Koech alias Daniel Korir is a suspect in the disappearance of her husband and he should be investigated.
