Al Shabaab sympathizer charged in Mombasa

09 February 2016, 20:54 Ken Wekesa

Mombasa - A man believed to have concealed information that would have led to the arrest of key Al Shabaab suspects who had planned to conduct attacks in Mombasa and Malindi has been charged before a Mombasa court.

Abdulahfatah Twahir Abdallah pleaded guilty to charges of failing to disclose information to the police contrary to section 41 of the prevention of terrorism Act before principal magistrate Richard Odenyo.

It is alleged that January 5, 2016 at Malindi area within Kilifi County, Abdallah was believed to be having information that could lead to the arrest of terror suspects within Mombasa and Malindi.

This came following the gunning down of four suspected Al Shabaab terrorists in Malindi and recovery of a map of the area they had planned to attack.

Police also recovered 5 grenades, 1 pistol, 2 rounds of ammunition, 12 spent cartridges, 8 mobile phones and KES 109 000 which was in the house that was used by the suspects in Kwachocha Malindi.

The four suspects who were killed during the raid were Mohammed Abdulrahim Mohammed, Zacharia Mohammed Suleiman Awadh aka Hamza, Abdallah Salim Maramu aka Daga and Issa Jabri.

Earlier, Coast region Coordinator Nelson Marwa confirmed that the suspects were under the police radar and were allegedly hiding in Boni forest after receiving training in Somalia.

He further said the suspects were planning to conduct major terror attacks in Mombasa and Malindi.

The defense lawyers are set to make bond applications tomorrow.
