Kenyan Police officials have arrested a suspected terrorist, who is a Somalian national.
This was disclosed in a statement by the Kenya’s Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), and obtained by Security Watch Africa (SWA) on Monday.
The statement said “Langata based crime busters early today morning arrested a terror suspect identified as Ali Abdullahi Hussein, within Langata shopping center.
“The suspect who is a Somali national had at around 2am approached a Police Officer on patrol and cunningly sought information from him that he found suspicious.
“The suspect sought to know on which day of the week a popular joint along Langata road, hosts the largest number of patrons.”
It added “The Officer was puzzled by the questions from the suspect, who posed as an ordinary civilian seeking general information. When the Officer hesitated to respond, the suspect offered a reward of Sh180,000 in exchange for the information that was not forthcoming.
“Convinced that the man was up-to no good, the Officer on patrol raised his colleagues who responded immediately and arrested the suspect. 1,396 U.S dollars were recovered from the suspect.
“He is currently being grilled by anti terror detectives, to establish his motive,” it said.
