, NAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 17 – The National Police Service has sought public help to track down two terror suspects it describes as “extremely dangerous.”
A notice issued by Deputy CID chief Gideon Kimilu says Mohamed Mohamud a.k.a Dulyadin a.k.a Gamadheere is from Garissa while Ahmed Iman is from Majengo in Nairobi.
“Anybody who spots them or has information on their whereabouts should pass it to the nearest police station or Administration Police camp for action. They are extremely dangerous.”
He says the two are among key Al Shabaab commanders responsible for a spate of terror attacks in the country who are being sought by police.
Kenya has faced increased terror threats in recent months with the latest being the Mandera quarry massacre of 36 people who were pulled out of their tents and shot dead.
Weeks earlier, another 28 people were killed when attackers waylaid a Nairobi-bound bus and killed passengers.
Al-Shabaab has stepped up its campaign in Kenya since 2011, when Kenya sent troops across the border to help battle the militants.
In one of the worst attacks on Kenyan soil, 67 people were killed last year when four gunmen took over the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi.
The security situation saw David Kimaiyo exit his position as Inspector General of Police.
President Uhuru Kenyatta also announced he had nominated Joseph Nkaissery as Interior Cabinet Secretary, taking over from a beleaguered Joseph ole Lenku.
Nkaissery was vetted by Parliament’s Committee on Appointments and its report was due to be tabled in Parliament Thursday for debate.
