Nkaissery : Man arrested in Garissa University attack

02 April 2015, 15:29

Garissa - Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery says one suspected extremist was arrested as he attempted to flee the scene of an al-Shabaab attack on Garissa University College.

One survivor said he personally saw five gunmen at the college.

Nkaissery made the announcement in a press conference.

Michael Bwana, a 20-year-old student who managed to flee from the attack, said he and other survivors have been trying to call their trapped friends but their phones are switched off.

Either the students turned off their phones for their own safety or the gunmen have seized the handsets, he said.

"Most of the people still inside there are girls," he told The Associated Press, referring to the student dormitory in which gunmen are believed to be holding an unknown number of students.
