KENYA POLICE ON ALERT FOR FOUR AL-SHABAAB MILITANTS

NAIROBI– The Kenya police are on the alert for four suspected al-Shabaab militants who are believed to have sneaked into the country from their base in neighbouring Somalia and has asked Kenyans, especially those in the northern counties of Mandera, Wajir and Garissa, to be vigilant and to provide the police with any information of the four suspects.

The four, who are led by one Ibrahim Mohammed alias Shariif Li Kului, are said to be planning terrorist attacks in the country as Muslims observe the holy month of Ramadan. The other three were named by the police as Mumina Eroba, Abdiwahab Osman Ahmed and Ahmed Dabar.

They are believed to have entered the country through the porous Kenya-Somalia border in Mandera, Wajir or Garissa, which police say have become transit points of the terrorist group.

Kului is said to have sent one Ahmed Dabar to look for targets, including government employees, to be used in attacks to be staged in Mandera and Wajir counties.

Police urged locals in these areas to be extra vigilant. They said Ahmed Dabar, who is a native of Wajir County, was a student at Madarasatul Muad and was involved in the February 2018 attack on teachers at Qarsa primary school in Wajir County. Abdiwahab Osman Ahmed also hails from Wajir County.
