Police arrest terror suspect at Langata shopping centre


A terror suspect, a Somali national was arrested early Saturday morning and is currently being grilled by anti-terror detectives.

According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the terror suspect had at around 2 am approached a police officer on patrol and cunningly sought information from him that the officer found suspicious.

Ali Abdullahi Hussein had sought to know on which day of the week a popular joint along Langata road, hosts the largest number of patrons.

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,”  said the DCI.

1,396 U.S dollars were recovered from the suspect who is being interrogated to establish his motive.
