Security beefed at Moi International Airport
19 March 2014, 11:43
Mombasa - Police in Mombasa County have banned motorbikes from accessing the Moi International Airport in the wake of terror alert.
In a security meeting led by Mombasa county commissioner, Nelson Marwa and Mombasa county commander, Robert Kitur, Mombasa security chiefs assured tourists that all security agents were working to control any security threat.
“The airport is out of bounds; only registered recognized taxis
are going to operate in the airport,” said Marwa.
Marwa said the embargo will help police carry their operations. Anti Terror Police officers Tuesday seized two most wanted terror suspects and recovered a huge haul of explosive devices packed in a Toyota Surf car at Changamwe, Mombasa county.
Izak Noor and Abdiaziz Abdi were planning to detonate the explosives in unspecific buildings in Mombasa county.
The two were Tuesday evening arraigned in a Mombasa Court to answer to various charges.
A combined team of bomb experts including foreigners were frantically attempting to detonate the highly powerful bombs at the Coast provincial police headquarters last night where the car had been towed to.
However, security chiefs have said the police are still compiling their investigation reports to determine the motive behind the incident.For the latest on national news, politics, sport, entertainment and more follow us on
