Nairobi - Security officials on Sunday identified one of the al Shabaab gunmen who massacred students at Garissa University College as the son of a government official, the Interior Ministry said.
Spokesman Mwenda Njoka said Abdirahim Abdullahi was one of the four gunmen who attacked the university campus on Thursday, killing nearly 150 people.
"The father had reported to security agents that his son had disappeared from home... and was helping the police try to trace his son by the time the Garissa terror attack happened," Njoka told Reuters in a text message.
