Mandera Senator Billow Kerrow was questioned by police yesterday for more than five hours over claim of mass graves in the county.
The senator was interrogated at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters along Kiambu Road in Nairobi.
Earlier, Kerrow and three MPs from Mandera had been arrested at Wilson Airport in Nairobi on arrival from the border town, where a search for alleged mass graves had yielded nothing.
But MPs Mohamud Mohamed (Mandera West), Isaack Shabaan (Lafey) and Abdulaziz Farah (Mandera East) did not record statements.
Kerrow has since apologised over the allegations. He first appeared before the head of investigations John Kariuki before other officers were called to take his statements. DCI Ndegwa Muhoro said they were interested in Kerrow.

"He is the one who made the remark. Let him apologise again but we will know the way forward after the Director of Public Prosecutions gives his verdict," said Muhoro.
Kerrow said he recorded statements on his remarks that Kenya Defence Forces were involved in the alleged killings, adding he had apologised to Kenyans but not to Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery. "I will continue to speak for my people on such issues," he said, adding he would seek legal opinion over the CS's claims that he supports terrorists.
