Police in Kenya have arrested two terrorist suspects who are believed to be planning attacks on churches across the country.
The two were nabbed in simultaneous security operations in Nairobi and in Garissa, a county in eastern Kenya on the border with Somalia.
Abdi Fatah Nur Ali was arrested in Nairobi with fraudulent documents he obtained from his accomplice, Farah Shaleh Aden, who was arrested in Garissa.
Two simultaneous security swoops carried out by the anti-terrorism police unit alongside other security agencies ended with the arrests of the two, who are described by police as “most wanted terror suspects”.
In the Nairobi operation, police arrested Abdi Fatah who was in possession of fake identification documents and four mobile phones.
The documents included a Kenyan identification card, with the number 29776050, under the name Muhamed Abdulahi Muhamed, an asylum-seeker pass from the United Nations Higher Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) under the name Abdi Fatah Nur Abdi, an ID card number 24422752 bearing the name Francis Ochieng Okoth and four mobile phones with SIM cards registered to the fraudulent identities.
Police also arrested Farah Shaleh Aden in Garissa, who aided the first suspect in obtaining one of the fake documents. The two were said to have been planning attacks on churches across the country.
