Mombasa key terror suspect to spend 22 years in jail

Abdullahi was charged alongside Isaak Noor who was acquitted after the prosecution failed to link him to the crimes.

NAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 26 – A key terror suspect behind the 2014 foiled Al-Shabaab attack in Mombasa has been sentenced to 22 years imprisonment.

Abdiaziz Abdullahi was convicted of five counts—including illegal possession of six hand grenades, an AK-47 rifle and 270 bullets.

Senior principal magistrate Francis Kyambia said Abdullahi deserved the punishment considering the seriousness of the offenses.

Police said Abdullahi was found with a vehicle loaded with explosives, which was later detonated by the Anti-Terrorism Police Unit (ATPU).

Abdullahi was charged alongside Isaak Noor who was acquitted after the prosecution failed to link him to the crimes.
