DCI Releases Names Of 5 Most Wanted Terror Suspects

    The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) has appealed to members of the public to volunteer information that may lead to the arrest of five dangerous terror suspects, linked to the Alshabab terror network.

    According to DCI, four of the suspects are responsible for recent attacks against civilians and security forces in Lamu County and within the larger Boni enclave while one was involved in the Garissa University attack in 2014, which led to the death of 147 innocent people.

    “Ramadhan Hamisi Kufungwa commands Al Shabaab fighters and coordinates attacks from Somalia targeting innocent Kenyans. He is the link person to Kassim Musa Mwarusi, a fugitive responsible for executing attacks in Boni and movement of recruits to join Al Shaabab and other terror groups from Kenya,” DCI said.

    The second suspect Issa Abdalla Ahmed alias Issa Kauni, URWA/ORWA, Jafar from Malindi in Kilifi County, joined Al Shabaab and traveled to Somalia in 2014.

    “He has been involved in several previous attacks in the country and has risen through the ranks to become a member of the suicide brigade,” the DCI added.

    He is currently involved in planning attacks against targets within the country.

    Ahmed Omar Said alias Dogo Tabibu, Bilal also from Malindi in Kilifi County joined the Shabaab terror network in 2016 and was attached to the Jaysh Ayman Brigade, where he participated in several attacks within the Boni Forest.

    “The fourth suspect Maalim Yussuf Hassan Abdullahi alias Isaack Hassan Abdullahi, Maalim Yussuf Abdullahi Ibrahim is wanted for the killing of three (3) teachers at QARSA in 2018 and the assassination of a local assistant chief in Gumurey, Wajir County in December 2020.”

    The last dangerous and armed suspect has been identified as Maalim Abbas alias Abbas Guyo.

    He is linked to the planning of the Garissa University College attack in April 2014 where one hundred and forty-seven (147) people lost their lives among other attacks in the country.

    “Should you have any information regarding the whereabouts of the above mentioned suspects whose activities pose a serious security threat to innocent Kenyans, do not hesitate to reach us through the anonymous #FichuakwaDCI Hotline number 0800 722 203 or the police hotline number 999,” the DCI pleaded.
