Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on Wednesday raided a militia hideout in Kwale’s Bombo area where they gunned down one terror suspect.

The sleuths were acting on intelligence that a group of three suspects was planning to stage an attack within the area.

The three suspects were ambushed in their hideout, upon which they attempted to escape forcing the detectives to fire, leaving one dead while the other two escaped with gunshot wounds.

An AK47 rifle, 763 rounds of ammunition, a HP laptop, flash disk, 9 mobile phones, measuring jars, conical flasks, magnesium metal powder, electric bulbs, water bottles, and a note listing targeted areas were confiscated from the suspects’ hideout.

The area is presently being combed for more suspects with more officers deployed to beef up security in the area.

Anti-terrorism detectives have also since launched investigations into the incident.
