US offers KES 2.8 billion for Garissa attack militants

11 November 2015, 18:59 William Korir

Nairobi - The United States has offered KES 2.8 billion in bounties for the capture of 6 Al Shabaab operatives it describes as highly dangerous.

Those named in the list released Wednesday include Mahad Karate, also known as Abdirahman Mohammed Warsame who is blamed for the assassinations of 148 people, many of them students in the Garissa University College attack back in April.

Warsame is wanted alongside Abu Ubaidah, also known as Diriye who is the new Shabaab leader, having replaced Ahmed Abdi Mohammed Godane who was killed in a drone attack.

“The US Secretary of State has authorised rewards of up to $6 million for information on the whereabouts of Abu Ubaidah (Direye), up to $5 million each for information on Mahad Karate, Ma’alim Daud, and Hassan Afgooye, and up to $3 million each for information on Maalim Salman and Ahmed Iman Ali,” The US Department of State said.

Maalim Daud, Hassan Afgooye, Maalim Salman and Ahmed Iman Ali are also wanted for recruiting Kenyan youth into Al Shabaab and kidnapping foreigners to demand ransom for terror activities.

Abu Ubaidah, also known as Direye, was named the leader of Al Shabaab on September 6, 2014, after the death of former Al Shabaab emir Ahmed Abdi aw-Mohamed (Godane)," the report continues.

" Mahad Karate, also known as Abdirahman Mohamed Warsame has played a key role in the wing of Al Shabaab responsible for assassinations and the April 2 attack on Garissa University College," it adds.

" Ma’alim Daud is responsible for Al Shabaab’s planning, recruitment, training, and operations against the government of Somalia and Western targets," it describes.

" Hassan Afgooye oversees a complex financial network whose activities range from fake charities, and fundraising to racketeering and kidnapping in support of Al Shabaab’s activities," it follows.

" Maalim Salman leads Al Shabaab’s African foreign terrorist fighters and has been involved in operations in Africa targeting tourists, entertainment establishments, and churches," it finishes.

Kenya and the US are working hand in hand to decimate Shabaab, which is now apparently linked with the Islamic State terror group ISIS.
