Police recover two lost guns linked to barrack attack, bank shooting

05 January 2016, 16:02 Ken Wekesa

Mombasa - Police in Mombasa recovered two rifles after conducting a raid in a house in Majengo, with one of them being suspected to belong to an Administration Police officer killed in cold blood in Gulf bank by unknown assailants last year.

Mombasa County commissioner, Nelson Marwa linked the M4 gun to a raid that was conducted by suspected MRC members at the Nyali barracks in 2013.

“We have been telling them to give back the G3 rifle. This is the gun that was taken from the officer who was shot in cold blood in Bondeni area and the M4 is linked to the Nyali barrack attack,” said Marwa.

Speaking to the press, Marwa said that police are holding suspect in connection with the raid in Majengo where 2 guns, more than 350 rounds of ammunition, explosives, 1 phone, a laptop, SIM cards and 1 memory card were recovered.

“Four of the suspects sneaked out of the house before the police arrived. These are Kassim Mohammed Abdallah, Hussein Omar Said alias Babgy, Mohammed Salim Mohammed and Ismail Mohamed Sosi and we are holding one in custody named Abdulfatani Twahir Abdallah,” said Marwa.

The County commissioner said police have heightened their intelligence at the coastal region and they will now go for the criminals who are suspected to be hiding within the communities.

Marwa urged the leaders of Majengo area to come out and help the police in the fight against crime with the region.

He questioned how an open house within Majengo area could be turned into an armoury hosting suspected Al Shabaab militants without the knowledge of locals.

He further warned that police were on high alert this year to fight any form of crime in the region and they will not relent in their fight against drugs, poaching and radicalization.

“In 2013, 2014 and 2015 we were just warming up. This year we will tackle security head-on and we urge them to surrender because us taking war to them will be costly to them. We will also step up the war against drugs as there is a relationship between drugs and criminality in Mombasa,” said Marwa.

Regional police commandant, Francis Wanjohi said the four are suspected to have arrived in Mombasa from Boni Forest with the aim of conducting a major attack within the coastal city of Mombasa.
