Police arrest 40 suspected terrorists

29 May 2013, 15:39 Alloys Musyoka

Security officers in Bura Constituency, Tana River North district, have arrested forty suspected criminals from North Eastern Kenya.
The suspects are believed to have fled Police operations in Garissa following a series of killings by suspected Al-shabaab sympathizers targeting security officers in the area.
Tana River North District Commissioner Reuben Loyotoman said that the suspects were arrested in different parts of the district.
Addressing the media, Loyotoman said: “The number is even more than 40 and we are still tracing others who might also be hiding in the area.”

Loyotoman further noted that some of the suspects were arrested at Bangale market among other towns in the district.
He said the operation aimed at arresting more suspects who ran away from Garissa to avoid being arrested by Police will continue.
“We are not going to accommodate anyone who does not belong here and does not have identification card,” he said.
The DC said most of the suspects arrested had no identification cards, confirming that all were from North Eastern.
“We have taken them back to Garissa and handed them over to Police for interrogation because you never know if they were among those involved in the series of attacks in the area,” he noted.
The administrator said they were assisted by locals in the area after they noticed suspicious people in their area.
He said they are not allowing pastoralists from other areas and especially from North Eastern to graze in region for the sake of security and to avoid conflicts between pastoralists from Bura and those from Garissa.
Loyotoman said that pastoralists who need to graze their cattle in the district should get permission from provincial administration and locals who should confirm if there is space for more grazing land.
