Police arrest an Al-shabaab member at Likoni in Mombasa

04 October 2016, 16:22 Gabriel Ngalla

Nairobi - Police on Monday night arrested a terror suspect linked to the Al-shabaab terror outfit at his hide out in Mrima area Likoni Sub-county within Mombasa.

Confirming the incident Likoni Police Boss Willy Simba said that the 30 year old Al-shabaab member Rama Ali Bamama was arrested after police raided his house at Mrima where together with other two terror suspects have been hiding for unknown period of time.

Simba said that police got a tip off from the public that Bamama was harboring a gun and was posing a great danger to them.

“We took the public fear with great concern and seriousness and we invaded the hide out immediately and arrested Bamama who was hiding the G-3 rifle under his bed, one magazine and a round of ammunition” added Simba.

The Likoni OCPD also revealed that the other two suspects managed to escape the police raid and security agents are in pursuit of the two.

“One of the suspects who slipped out of our hands no doubt he was a witch doctor and has been offering such services to the other two suspects since we found a lot of paraphernalia in their hide out” revealed Simba.

Simba added that the G- 3 rifle has been identified as the one which was stolen at the Likoni police station early June this year though Bamama together with his accomplices interfered with it.

He added that the G-3 rifle has been used to terrorize and even kill business people in the area especially M-pesa shop owners.

“Most of those attacked by unknown gunmen and robbed of their money in their M-pesa shops and some even killed could tell that a G-3 rifle was being used by the gunmen” noted Simba.

Police are still interrogating Bamama who has already admitted to me a Member of the Al-shabab terror network and was recruited three years ago to join the terror group in Somali and recently sneaked back into the Country from Somali.

He is being detained at the Coast regional criminal investigations department-CID headquarters in Mombasa.
