They are being held at separate police stations as investigations and hunt for more suspects continue.
More police officers were moved to the North Eastern region as part of efforts to tame what officials called more planned attacks by extremists who are taking advantage of the ongoing military operations in Somalia.
The commanders held meetings in their respective areas of jurisdiction to convey the message to the other officers on the ground on Tuesday.
Police spokesman Eric Kiraithe said the operations would continue to ensure that the suspects behind the attacks are nabbed.
“The officers are talking to suspects who we hope will provide crucial information to help us in getting the criminals,” said Kiraithe.
He at the same time urged for co-operation from the locals in ensuring the criminals are nabbed.
“The attackers are from the area and locals probably know them. It is their duty to co-operate for us to succeed.”
