Police last evening released pictures of six suspects they are looking for over their alleged links to al-Shabaab. Police named Abdullahi Jarso Kotola, Hassan Jarso Kotola, Hassan Abdalla Mushi, James Kimanthi Masai, Hamisi Swaleh Abdalla and Rama Mbwana Mbega as some of the Kenyans who have in the recent past joined the terror group.

The six are also accused of enticing Kenyan youths to travel to Somalia to join al-Shabaab. One of them, Rama Mbwana Mbega, aka Junia, is suspected to be hiding in Boni forest, where the terror group is active.

“He was recruited in Mombasa. He returned to Kenya in 2012 and is suspected to have been part of numerous attacks,” police said on Tuesday.

“Rama went back to Somalia in early 2014 and is still in communication with his fellow Jihadists in Kenya to recruit more youths from the Coast and North Eastern region. He is suspected to be holed up in Boni forest and operating from Jilib.”
