Mombasa, KENYA: Anti terror police team in Mombasa took the better part of Monday probing a terror suspect who was intercepted in Nairobi.

The suspect identified as Juma Goza,36 a resident of Kisauni in Mombasa, was arrested by anti-terror police in Nairobi and handed over to their counterparts in Mombasa, for interrogation.

A source aware of investigations told Baraka FM the suspect disappeared mysteriously at his  home in Kisauni and he has been alleged to always sneak back into the house at night.

His appearance at night prompted the police to investigate and lay a trap for him; where a caretaker was arrested.

Police said the caretaker revealed to them the whereabouts of the suspect and his unknown activities and a team from Nairobi was informed about the suspect; probing them to conduct a search.

The suspect also is said to have a residence in Kabuki area in Kiambu county.

According to the team investigating  the suspect, he claims to be an agent that recruits domestic workers to Arab countries, in search of jobs and he has no links with terrorism activities.

“We are not satisfied with his claims,we will continue to probe the suspect because there are more gaps that need to be filled,” said a source.

County commissioner Evans Achoki when contacted by Baraka FM, neither denied nor confirmed and he said  that they would soon release a comprehensive statemnet about the matter

“We will soon release the statement regarding the matter.” Said Achoki.

The suspect is being locked at one of the police station in Mombasa under tight security, as this comes after the Sunday morning  attack at central police station where suspected three women terrorists attacked a station with an aim of freeing their colleague arrested over terrorism activities.
