NAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 23 – The widow of slain Muslim cleric Aboud Rogo has been charged over the Mombasa Central police station attack.
Haniya Saggar was charged with failing to give information about the attack mastermind Tasmin Yakub who was among the three killed during the September 11 attack. Two police officers were also injured during the incident.
She denied the charges before Mombasa Principal Magistrate Diana Mochache who will rule on her bail application on Monday.
She is the first suspect to formally face charges over the incident, with six others still in custody including three young girls said to have schooled with one of the attacker.
Police had intercepted telephone calls made by the mastermind of the attack at Central police station and traced it to Saggar.
Records from her phone indicated that she had received an unknown amount of money from one of the women killed during the attack at the police station.
Three girls who were classmates of one of the three slain terrorists killed during the foiled attack at Mombasa Central Police station were Thursday arraigned in court.
Lulu Ali, Nasteho Ali and Zamzam Abdullah are suspected to be accomplices of three slain women who attacked the police station on September 11.
This brings to seven the number of suspects arraigned in court so far; with all of them remanded in custody to enable police conclude investigations against them.
