Police release terror suspect without charge

- in News

The Moi University Student who was arrested two weeks ago on suspicion of being involved in terror activities has been released unconditionally.

Salad Tari Gufu, 25, was arrested at the Huruma Police Station by the Anti-Terrorism Police Unit, moments after he had presented himself to clear his name from the list of six suspects released by police.

But on Monday, the Nation has learnt, Senior Resident Magistrate Hellen Onkwani ordered for Mr Salad’s release, saying that “the respondent was not supposed to be arrested and it was his brother that was to be arrested.”

Mr Salad who is pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in education at the University’s main campus, had said that he is innocent and that he wanted to set the records straight with the security forces.

“I am not involved in any terror activities and I am not armed like the police are saying. I am a student at the Moi University and I just completed my attachment waiting to resume my studies in September after the elections,” Mr Salad said on the day he presented himself to the police.
