Suspected Kenyan Terrorist Arrested

A suspected Kenyan terrorist with a Ksh.10 million bounty on his head has been arrested in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

The suspect, Mombasa resident Salim Rashid Mohamed alias Chotara or Turki Salim, police say, was released on bond in 2021 over terrorism charges before he went missing.

Mohammed, who was linked to various criminal activities in Mombasa, is believed to have joined the Islamic State in Mozambique at the time.

In a video, Mohamed can be seen explaining to DRC residents that he and two other associates were en route to South Africa in the hopes of starting over.

It is still unclear whether DRC intends to extradite Mohammed to Kenya to answer for his alleged offenses.
