An Islamist militant who surrendered to government authorities in Kwale following an amnesty in February this year, has been shot dead.Security sources have accused Al Shabaab agents of executing the former accomplice, apparently for leaving the group last year following the April 2 terrorist massacre in Garissa University College last year. The victim was buried at a local cemetery amid fears that his murder will dissuade militants from surrendering.
On February 23, The Standard reported Subira Sudi Mwangole’s surrender to Kenyan authorities at Matuga School of Government a day earlier.
Mwangole told this reporter that he received military training as a foreign fighter under Al Shabaab in Somalia and returned to Kenya after being recruited into the terrorist group by Hassan Suleiman Mwayuyu and Hassan Bakari, who were killed several years ago by suspected State anti-terror agents.
