The driver of the missing Cuban doctors was on Thursday arraigned in court.

Issack Ibreim Robow is accused of kidnapping, aiding and abetting terrorism as well as faking Kenyan citizenship.

The driver allegedly committed the four counts on April 12, 2019.

According to the Prosecutor Harisson Kiarie, Robow is the one who was driving the Cuban doctors to Mandera Referral Hospital on the day they were abducted.

An affidavit filed by Inspector Abdishakur Adan showed that ATPU officers arrested the suspect the same day.

Two days later, he was flown to Nairobi for further investigation.

Mr Kesi, who was the police officer in charge of the two doctors, told the court how a white Probox vehicle with four men passed their Toyota Land Cruiser and suddenly opened fire.

“….our driver had already stopped and disappeared…three men were wielding AK 47 riffles, I also took off for safety, unfortunately my colleague who was also guarding the doctors was shot dead. The white Probox later drove off with the two medics,” he said.

It is now six months after the doctors were abducted and little is known about their whereabouts.

The prosecution witness 07 will continue to testify on Thursday to be cross examined by the accused’s lawyer.
