Occupy Africa Unity Aquare protest leader Itai Dzamara has been allegedly abducted by suspected state security agents while at a barbershop in his neighbourhood.

Occupy Africa Unity Square secretary general Charles Nyoni says Dzamara was abducted by five men who forcibly shoved him in a white isuzu twincab.

Nyoni tells Studio 7 the men approached Dzamara and accused him of stealing a cow before they grabbed him.

He says efforts to locate him are proving too futile as the police are professing ignorance over the issue.

Dzamara has previously been arrested for demonstrating and calling on President Robert Mugabe to step down. Last year he handed over a petition at Munhumutapa Offices encouraging the president to step down immediately and pave way for fresh elections.
