Cleric held for spearheading Masjid Musa radicalization

25 November 2014, 11:53 Ken Wekesa

Mombasa -  Detectives in Mombasa are holding a Muslim cleric suspected to be behind the recruitment of youths to join the Al Shabaab at the Masjid Musa in Majengo.

Mohammed Ali Abdallah is also being investigated by police after he was found in possession of a pen camera and tape recorder allegedly stolen from a CID officer while he was praying at Masjid Musa.

In a sworn affidavit before magistrate Vicktoria Kachuadho, the investigating officer Edward Ronoh told the court that the police conducted raids into the house of the accused after receiving a tip from members of the public and recovered 15 DVDs believed to be containing terrorism literature, a pen camera and electricity bills for Masjid Musa.

In the affidavit, Ronoh applied to have the suspect detained in police custody for 14 days to enable police to conclude their investigations into the case.

“The investigation surrounding the case is complex; we pray that the court grant us 14 days to conclude our investigations” said Ronoh.

He said that the accused might be charged for recruiting people to be members of Al Shabaab.

Abdallah was arrested on November 22, 2014 at his home in Majengo after the police raided Musa Mosque to flash out radical youths who were believed to have taken over the Mosque.

Over 200 youths were arrested and are still being investigated by police.
