MANDERA—A Mandera court has allowed police to continue holding a terror suspect for four days to conclude investigations.

Abdikadir Hussein Noor is accused of being a member of the Somalia based Al Shabaab militant group.

The suspect who was arrested on November 11 at border point three has been alleged to have involved himself with terror activities in Somalia since February 2015.

He was arrested in possession of a training schedule for the Al Shabaab including types of firearms and had received military training while in Somalia.

The prosecution told the court the man was in possession of two Somalia sim cards of Hormud and Somnet networks that he often communicated to unknown people living in Somalia.

Further investigations by the Anti Terror Police Unit (ATPU) indicated that the accused holds various bank accounts in Somalia banks worth 6,600 US Dollars.

Mr. Noor is also charged of entering the country through non designated entry point and failing to report departure at the immigration office.

Senior resident magistrate Kimani Mukabi deferred the hearing to November 18 to give ATPU time to conclude investigations.

On Wednesday suspected Al Shabaab militants attacked an ambulance between Kutullo and Elwak killing unknown number of people and others missing.
