Five suspected terrorists were on Sunday arrested in Kisumu County.

Nyando sub-county police boss Leonard Matete said three of the suspects were arrested in Ahero while two others were nabbed in Kombewa.

“The three suspects had boarded a matatu heading to Kericho but alighted in Ahero when they realized they were being tracked. They started walking back towards Kisumu after they learned that a police roadblock had been erected near Ahero,” Matete said.

The police boss revealed that the suspects had Pakistan passports and appeared to have been in the country for a long period of time.

According to Matete, the suspects were being tracked by the Anti-Terror Police Unit following their suspicious activities and have been handed over to the unit for interrogation.
