Three suspects linked to last month’s Dusit Hotel terror attack have been freed by a Nyeri court due to lack of evidence.

The three, Abdul Kibiringi, James Mwai and Habiba Gedi, were in custody for five days to allow further investigations into their case and enable detectives to access their call logs data from a telephone service provider.

They were released after the Anti - terrorism Police Unit (ATPU) closed their files on Friday morning stating that their investigations did not reveal any links to the 14 Riverside Drive terror attack.
