KES 10 million bounty for German Shabaab attacker

17 June 2015, 16:56 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Police have offered a KES 10 million bounty for information leading to the capture of a German national said to have been a part of the group that attacked a KDF barracks in Lamu.

The man, whose photo police released Wednesday was said to have escaped with a serious gunshot wound sustained in the attack Sunday that saw 15of his colleagues killed.

His name, nor his whereabouts were not released by police.

The German was the third white militant who took part in the attack, with a British jihadist also believed to have been killed in the thwarted attack on the KDF base in Barue.

Thomas Evans is believed to have been among the group of militants who launched a pre-dawn raid.

Two Kenyan soldiers were killed and at least 15 Shabaab fighters died in the shootout, with another fighter, said to be Caucasian, also killed.

"All the available data, including photographs, points to it being Thomas Evans. There is an investigation going on with forensics and DNA to confirm his identity," KDF spokesman Colonel David Obonyo said.

If confirmed, Evans' death would be the first reported case of a British Islamist militant being killed on Kenyan soil.

Evans, in his mid-20s and also known as Abdul Hakim, is a Muslim convert whose family lives in Buckinghamshire in southern England.
