Police interrogate grenade attack suspect’s wife
Friday, March 16, 2012
Police investigating the grenade attacks at the Machakos Country Bus have now arrested the wife of one of the suspects who was once held over his alleged links with Somalia militia Al Shabaab.
Ms Husna Ali Shaaban, the wife of Hussein Nderitu Abbas alias Mohamed was arrested by detectives from Anti-Terror Police Unit (ATPU) for undisclosed reasons.
But insiders revealed they are still probing the last Saturday blast that claimed nine lives and left more than 60 wounded.
She was arrested from their city house and taken to ATPU where she was being grilled for the better part of the day.
"She is being grilled by the officers and we are yet to know why," said Nderitu’s lawyer Chacha Mwita.
Nderitu’s picture together with that of Sylvester Opiyo was last December circulated by police who said they wanted to grill them.
The two later surrendered to police who questioned them before setting them free. By then, terror threats were rife and high and police were following intelligence that could help deter the same.
On Friday, Opiyo and three other minors reported back at ATPU as directed by police. They had been arrested on Sunday, a day after the blast and grilled for three days.
The others were identified as Swaleh Ali, 13, Mustafa Gathogo, 14 and Victor Otieno, 16.
According to Mwita, Swaleh was due to join form one while Otieno is already in form one in one of the city schools and had a Swahili assignment that he was supposed to do.
"Police took ipods, mobile phones and Sh200 from the boys. All minors were interrogated and statements recorded from them before their fingerprints and photographs were taken without the presence of a lawyer or guardian," said Mwita.
The four were arrested in Umoja estate as they moved household goods into a new house.
Police said in December Opiyo and Nderitu were wanted as they "have vital information on Al Shabaab activities in Kenya."
