The authorities have called on the public to report any suspicious individuals involved in suspicious activities in a bid to boost security in the country.
This comes just a day after Salim Mohamed alias Chotara, Kenya’s 2014 KCSEstudent who scored an A- was arrested in DRC for alleged involvement in terrorism activities.
Chotara was arrested for being a member of the Islamist Rebel Group Allied Democratic Forces (ADF).
He is said to be the commander of ADF which has been organizing terrorist attacks in Uganda and DRC.
Chotara hails from Kenya, Mombasa County and had traveled to Turkey for further studies. He was however deported in 2017 and upon coming back to Kenya, he was arrested for radicalizing youths to join terrorist groups. He was released on Sh1.5 million bail.
In 2020, he fled the country with the Kenyan authorities having him on the most wanted list.
For instance, in November last year, Chotara was among five wanted terrorists who had a Sh50 million bounty on their heads.
Through Twitter, the DCI said a Sh50 million reward would be handed over to whoever had information that will lead to their arrests. The five were dubbed as armed and dangerous.
