A man who is believed to be a top Al Shabaab recruiter was Tuesday arraigned in a Garissa Court alongside two of his alleged recruits.

Aden Mohamed Maalim alias Bashir of Somali origin 38, together with Juma Waziri Suleiman alias Ras Katana 22, and Mohamed Abdalla Kamau alias Raymond 21, denied charges of being members of an unlawful group before Garissa Chief Magistrate Hannah Ndungu.

The three were arrested by anti-terror police at the Tana Bridge police barrier in Garissa over the weekend aboard a Garissa bound bus from Mombasa, and it’s believed Aden was ferrying his two recruits to Somalia.

The suspect looked at ease and collected despite the courtroom being full of members of the public who were curious to see the suspect, who wore casual shirts and blue jeans.

The court directed they be released on bond set at Sh2 million each with a surety of a similar amount, failure to which they would be kept in remand pending the hearing of their case to be heard on February 3.
