Al Shabaab split to push an international jihadist agenda, warns Boinnet

25 December 2015, 10:37 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi - The Inspector General of Police, Joseph Boinnet has asked Kenyans to be extra-vigilant following reports that Al Shabaab militants have divided themselves into two groups to spread global jihadist agenda.

It emerged that the two competing terrorist groups, one pledging allegiance to Al-Qaeda while another one is behind Islamic States (ISIS), want to demonstrate thoroughness in committing terror atrocities in Kenya and the entire region during this festive season.

Boinnet revealed that militants in support of Al-Qaeda are operating in southern part of Kenya and within Boni Forest while those behind ISIS are operating in North Eastern region especially in Mandera County.

For instance, the Inspector General of Police pointed out that the militants who attempted to attack a bus in El-Wak, Mandera County on Monday are promoting ISIS agenda.

He added that the Mandera group's masterminds include Isaak Osman Ali alias Okola, Abdifata Basre and Mohamed Bilal while the Boni Forest affiliates are led by Omar Ahmed Abdumanan.

The Monday attack on the bus by the terrorists failed after Muslim passengers shielded the targeted Christian passengers.

It was reported that female Muslims offered hijabs and head scarves to their Christian counterparts, and refused the terrorists' attempt to separate them along religious lines.

However, Boinnet affirmed the security agencies' commitment in averting terror attacks to ensure citizens are safe.
