Police are offering a Sh10 million bounty for five suspected terrorists.

They are; Salim Mohammed, Trevor Ndwiga, Muhammad Abubakar, Elgiva Bwire, and Barigi Haila wanted over terrorism charges and others for joining militia group Al-Shabaab.

Directorate of Criminal investigations (DCI) in an alert on Tuesday said Salim Rashid Mohamed also known as Chotara or Turki is being sought over terrorism charges and is suspected to have joined the Islamic State group in Mozambique.

“Mohamed is linked to various criminal activities in Mombasa and parts of South Coast, and is reportedly planning to sneak back into the country to carry out terror attacks,” authorities said.

Trevor Ndwiga alias Idriss Jamal is suspected to have joined Al-Shabaab in Somalia, the DCI said, adding that he is planning to sneak back into Kenya to carry out terror attacks.

Police said Elgiva Bwire alias Seif Deen is a former terror inmate who was released from Kamiti prison, Kiambu County on October 28, 2021.

“Elgiva vowed to carry out retaliatory attacks in the country against civilians and security personnel. He has gone underground and is believed to be planning said attacks,” police notified, while Barigi is suspected to have joined militia group Al-Shabaab.

Police say the five are all armed and dangerous and appeal to anyone with information on their whereabouts to reach out.
