SEE ALSO :The unseen war - Part 2During the meeting, it was resolved that military police, accompanied by the OCPD, search the suspects' houses. The two would be handed over to the anti-terror unit if found to have links with Al Shabaab or Al Qaeda terror groups, sources said. The incident came barely two weeks after two men were arrested and handed over to Anti-Terrorism Police Unit (ATPU) because they were suspected of having links with Al Shabaab. One man was arrested in Nanyuki town after he allegedly conducted a religious crusade with the intention of radicalising residents. The other one was arrested in Majengo slums in Nanyuki town, allegedly being recruited into Al Shabaab. “Terrorism has become a global and household issue and Nanyuki is of interest because it is a metropolitan town along the highway… We are vulnerable to terrorism but we are alert. We urge the public to report any suspicious strangers,” said Mutoro.
