19 October 2015, 15:49 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - Police in Nakuru on Monday arrested two suspected Al Shabaab members among them a KDF officer after they allegedly stormed a church service and confessed their links.

The two suspects are said to have been drunk before they interrupted the service at St Monica Catholic Church Section 58 to confess their links to the Somalia-based militant group.

Father Moses Muraya who is the Parish Priest Section 58 confirmed the incident saying that police were already handling the matter.

"It's true two people came to the church during a mass service and one confessed to be a member of the Al Shabaab. We have left the issue to the police and no one was injured," Father Muraya said.

The police confirmed the incident but decided to give scant information about the incident.

Nakuru County Police Commander, Hassan Barua said they cannot give much details about the suspects until investigations are complete.

"I would not like to comment on the issue for now. All I know is that the suspects are being held and investigations are on; we will only give a detailed report after the investigations are over," Barua said.

The two suspects are said to be relatives who have a rich network with the terror group.

According Barua, the two had elaborate plans on places they had mapped for attacks.

They were held at Bondeni Police before being transferred to Anti-terrorism unit for interrogation.
