Terror suspect surrenders to police in Mombasa

18 November 2014, 08:19 Mbungu Harrison

Mombasa - A wanted terror suspect surrendered to police in Mombasa, two days after his name was listed among the top wanted criminals by the Director of Criminal Investigations.

The 21-year-old Farah Abdi Fara, who lives in Mwembe Tayari area, surrendered to the police through Haki Africa Human Rights group and claimed innocent.

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations Ndegwa Muhoro had given the names of Ismael Shosi Mohammed aka Ismael Mmanga, Abdulkarim Mzee aka Abdul, Farah Abdi Farah, Kayuni Khatib Khamisi, Mahir Khalid Riziki, Fauz Omar Mohamed and Swaleh Ramadhan.  

Security forces had warned that some youths who are who are returnees from Somalia, are armed and dangerous as they are well trained to handle weapons and intelligence tactics.

Abdi, who was once arrested in Kiunga in connection with possession of photos of slain controversial Muslim cleric Aboud Rogo will be interrogated by police even after claimed to be innocent.

“I have done nothing wrong. I am wondering why they said I am a criminal," Abdi told the press at the police headquarters in Mombasa.

His father Abdi Farah, defended his son claiming that he was shocked to hear from the media that his son is a wanted criminal.

“Since December last year, he has been attending a criminal case in Lamu after police found his phone with photos of Aboud Rogo,” his father said.

"My son has never been involved in any criminal activity, he is a footballer and also sells goats at Kikowani in Mombasa,” the father added.

Mombasa County police commander Robert Kitur confirmed receiving the suspect and said police will interrogate him if he has any criminal records.

“I ask the others who are still hiding to surrender themselves and we will cooperate with them,” said Kitur during a press conference.
