Garissa attack planner pretended to be a student

07 April 2015, 17:00 William Korir

Nairobi - Six suspects arrested and believed to be behind the Garissa terrorist attacks have been remanded for 30 days.

The suspects arraigned in court are Mohamed Adan Surow, Osman Abdi Dakane, Rashid Charles Mberesero aka Rehani Dida, Mohamed Abdi Abikar, Hassan Aden Hassan and Sahal Diriye Hussein.

They are accused of directly aiding the attack last week that saw 148 people killed at the University College.

State Counsel Daniel Karuri asked the court to not grant them bail as they are yet to tell police who their accomplices that helped with the horrific attack are.

The state in its charge sheet says that Surow works at a hotel in Garissa town, where the attackers had several meals and that they are well known to him.

Dakane is a security guard at the university, and is accused of setting up the attack from an internal point of view. It is claimed that call records show that he spoke to individuals in Somalia, suspected to be al Shabaab operatives connected to the attack.

Mberesero is apparently from Tanzania who failed to explain his presence at the scene and was arrested when after being found under a bed in a dormitory in which some of the students were killed.

The suspect claimed to be a student at the university when questioned but Lecturers at the university denied his claims.

Abikar, Hassan and Hussein were arrested on the day of the attack in a bus from Garissa and are suspected to have been on their way to Somalia after delivering weapons.

Their case will be mentioned on May 7.
