General Service Unit (GSU) personnel have arrested a suspected Al-Shabaab militia and recovered a cache of weapons within Milimani area, Lamu county.
The arrest happened following an intelligence-led operation to flush out remnants of Al-Shabaab militants hiding in Boni forest.
“The suspect is reportedly part of a group of other militants believed to have staged a foiled attack on an NPS camp recently. He had a visible suspected-gun-inflicted wound on the left leg above the ankle allegedly sustained in the previous foiled attack,” a statement by National Police Service read.
The sleuths managed to recover 1 RPG launcher, 1 RPG heat warhead, 1 booster, and 2 boosters housing.
The suspect has since been placed in custody as security teams are out to pursue his accomplices believed to be holed up in the Boni forest.
The detectives thanked the public for being valued partners in the war on terror and encouraged them to continue sharing timely information with their nearest security officers.
