AFRICANGLOBE – Kenyan Police have released pictures of a German national who escaped with a gun wound during the botched Lamu terrorist attack last Sunday.
A Sh10 million bounty has been placed on Andreas Martin Muller aka Abu Nusaibah, believed to have been behind the attack on a military base in Barue.
Muller, believed to be hiding in the Boni forest, is armed and dangerous, the police said in a notice on Wednesday.
The numbers to call are National Police Service hotline 020 2199151 and APS headquarters hotline 0702 243877.
Eleven al Shabaab terrorists and two Kenya Defence Forces soldiers were killed during the attack at the camp.
Luqman Osman Issa alias Shirwa, said to have been the terrorists’ commander, was also killed.
British national Thomas Evans, aka Abdul Hakim, was also killed on Sunday.
Local media reported on May 29 that Shirwa and his gang had sneaked into Kenya and were planning attacks.
The police had placed a Sh2 million bounty on Shirwa after he fled into Boni forest; Amisom troops had captured him alongside other suspects at Kuday in Somalia.
Shirwa is believed to have been responsible for a spate of attacks on KDF troops and civilians in Kenya and Somalia’s Lower Juba area.
He is said to have led attacks in Mpeketoni between June and July 2014 that left more than 70 people dead.
His brother, a suspect implicated in the 2002 Kikambala attack, is serving a sentence in Sudan.
