Court releases three terror suspects
A Narok court has released three people who had been detained on suspicions of being accomplices to terror.
The three suspects of Somali origin appeared before Chief Magistrate Wilbroda Juma who released them after the prosecution team cleared them of terror allegations.
On Tuesday last week, the prosecution through the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) had applied to detain the three suspects Habiba Abdillahi Guled (Canadian-Somali), Jamal Ali alias Kamau and Bashir Mohamed Ali to verify their documents.
The application sought to give the police time to verify the validity of the Canadian, as well as to allow the police conduct a search on the home of Bashir in Nanyuki. It also was to allow the police to scrutinize the mobile phones and SIM cards of the suspects for any links to terror activities.
The trio was arrested on August 2nd, 2015 at Narosura area in Narok County after the residents raised suspicions as they were in possession of several mobile phones.
The prosecution team told the court that they had dropped the charges placed against the three as the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) National Intelligence Service (NIS) and the Anti Terror Police Unit (ATPU) had investigated and found them innocent.
Chief Magistrate Wilbroda Juma also dropped the charges against them noting that they should not be further detained as the prosecution team had found them free of guilt.
