Kilifi - Anti-terror police unit in Mombasa have blocked a bail application made by two men suspected to have been recruiting youths in Kilifi county to the outlawed Al Shabaab militia group.

Masuma Ali and Kalume Dunda denied the charges before Senior Resident Magistrate Reich.

The accused persons were arrested on August 5 for allegedly recruiting persons to be members of the Al Shabaab on July 7, 2014 at Mazeras Township.

In a sworn affidavit, the ATPU informed the court that the accused were arrested in Boni forest at the Kenya-Somalia border attempting to make their way to Somalia.

“Your Honor if the accused are out on bail, they could go back to Somalia to join the militia,” read the affidavit sworn by Corporal Gabriel Karaguh.

The ATPU said they had credible information linking the accused with the group and that they were a threat to the national security bearing the on going frequent attacks in different parts of Kenya.

The investigating officer said if the accused are released on bail, they would interfere with the ongoing investigation.

The court is set to give a ruling on the bail application on August 25, 2014.
