A court in Kwale has issued an arrest warrant against Nyali MP Mohammed Ali over a surety on Noordin Hassan Abdallah alias Kamanda, a terror suspect who failed to appear in court on October 4th and November 1st.
The court had earlier summoned the Nyali legislator on October 4th at the Kwale law courts to explain the whereabouts of Mr. Abdallah but he failed to show up, forcing the magistrate to issue the arrest warrant.
After being arrested in 2019, Abdallah was charged with conducting recruitment and radicalization of local youths into the Islamic State terror group at Shimoni in Kwale and was released on bond.
Detectives say Abdallah is a partner and a close associate of Salim Rashid Mohamed alias Chotara alias Turki, an IS operative who was recently filmed conducting a beheading in DR Congo.
“We went to court and the case was scheduled for hearing this month on 18. Is there a warrant I am not aware of? I am not aware to be honest,” Mohammed Ali said.
Mr. Abdallah was arrested in March last year in Mombasa after he was captured on CCTV surveillance robbing two people, one a school girl.
