NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 2 – The government has placed a Sh20 million bounty on wanted terrorist Mohamed Mohamud, alias Dulyadin alias Gamadhere who is accused of masterminding the Garissa university attack that has left over 20 people dead.
Intelligence reports show that Gamadhere who is believed to be in Somalia is a former teacher at a Madrassa in Northern Kenya.
Anyone with information on him is required to call 020 2199151 or 0702432877.
Highly placed security sources have told Capital FM News that Gamadhere is believed to have planned the execution of the attack, that is turning out to be one of the worst terror attacks, with fears of a higher death toll.
“The bounty on him has been revised to Sh20 million because he is believed to be the mastermind of this attack,” a security source revealed, saying official information on the matter will be communicated later.
Gamadhere was already wanted over last year’s attacks in northern Kenya, with Sh2 million bounty. Capital FM News has reliably established that the amount was revised upwards to facilitate his quick arrest and prosecution over the attacks.
The government had earlier Thursday placed it at Sh 5 million shillings before revising it upwards to Sh20 million.
Most of those killed in Thursday’s attack are students and two guards who were on duty when Al Shabaab militants stormed the university and opened fire indiscriminately.
