Mombasa - Police in Mombasa are searching for a handcuffed terror suspect who is at the heart of Thursday’s grenade attack in Mombasa that left two people injured.
The suspect escaped as police escorted him to the station for interrogation after getting information he was in a group of others who were planning an unspecified crime.
It is reported that three men believed to be his accomplices hurled a grenade at the arresting officers, giving the suspect a leeway to escape and injuring one of the officers.
One of the attackers was carrying a big polythene bag, Daily Nation reports.
The County police boss, Nelson Marwa, has however assured residents of their security saying they are working to contain insecurity in the region.
