On Monday morning, police took him to Milimani law courts, where he was detained for seven days to allow for further investigations. According to the charge sheet, Abdullahi Musa was accused of extorting company Ibrahim Khalif by asking money to remove a Facebook post he had placed.
The blogger sent him the messages placed on his page between April 20th and April 25th, 2021, in Nairobi County, knowing the written contents and with the goal to extort money from Ibrahim Khalif, according to the court.
He will now be held at Central Police Station for one week before being formally charged on Monday. Before they fell out, the blogger worked for Mombasa County Governor Ali Hassan Joho. He then began disparaging Joho, who had ignored him, on his page.
Detectives suspect Musa has been conducting an ocean syndicate in which he uploads derogatory statements aimed primarily at Muslims before requesting money to get the post removed.
Musa had sought Sh5 million from Ibrahim to remove a post tying him to illegal deals in Nairobi County, according to Ibrahim.
