ODM Director of Communications Philip Etale now claims that Azimio leader Raila Odinga's bodyguard Maurice Ogeta has been abducted by people suspected to be police officers.
According to Etale, Ogeta was taken by the officers who were in plain clothes and claimed they are believed to be from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations.
He said Ogeta was abducted while he drove to work on Wednesday morning before they drove him to an unknown destination.
"Unknown people in plain clothes suspected to be police officers from the DCI have abducted Raila Odinga’s bodyguard Maurice Ogeta while driving to work, bundled him in the car boot, and driven away with him to an unknown destination. His whereabouts remain unknown," Etale said on Wednesday on his Twitter account.
An official from the police confirmed that Ogeta was among those targeted for arrest and detention.
He had been trailed to his house in Langata, the official added.
The arrest comes even as some Azimio leaders are reported to have gone into hiding over fears of arrest.
The leaders went into hiding on Tuesday evening and up to Wednesday they were still missing from their usual residences.
This followed reports that a number of the leaders including Embakasi East Member of Parliament Babu Owino had been detained.
Owino was detained at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport on arrival from Mombasa. About six other Members of the County Assembly and pockets of activists including one Calvin Okoth alias Gaucho were also detained overnight.
They were accused of planning anti-government demonstrations, which they deny.
A section of Kenya Kwanza leaders are also reported to have gone into hiding after learning they were targeted for possible arrest for organizing goons to attack anti-government protesters.
Police sources in Nairobi said they were tracking for arrest at least five Kenya Kwanza politicians who had been mentioned in the scheme.
This was aimed at averting any chaos that may break out either Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday in the planned protests.
Intelligence reports had indicated a section of politicians were paying and arming goons to cause mayhem.
