A confidential report seen by the Nation indicates that the seven, who were believed to be from Wajir and Mandera East, were travelling in a white Toyota Probox when they were arrested shortly after entering Mbarambate shopping centre at around 9.30pm on Monday.

Police found several items similar to communication gadgets, including seven mobile phones, earphones, a solar panel, a battery and their IDs.

During the search, cooking utensils, foodstuffs, sleeping mats, 20 litres of petrol and jerricans of water were found.


Last Thursday, Mr Abdimajit Adan, 24, was arrested alongside Mr Mohammed Nane, 23, in Merti, Isiolo County, in a group of five suspected terrorists who were transporting a cache of weapons in a car hidden in the bush.
