Obare, known for his scandalous exposés on well-known figures including actors, influencers, musicians, and politicians had been informed by the DCI on Monday, July 27, that he would be required to appear before them in the next few days.
According to Obare, several officers stormed his home in Kisumu on the morning of Thursday, July 30, before transporting him back to Nairobi.
He posted a message on social media thanking his followers for their support even as his lawyer Titus Munene Kinyua confirmed the arrest.
“As I said earlier I was summoned by the DCI. Today morning I was arrested by very many officers at my home. Thank you for your undying support,” Obare wrote while on his way back to Nairobi.
Obare had revealed that he was summoned over posts he made concerning influencer and model Natalie Tewa.
