One of the wanted terrorists turn himself to the police in Nyeri.

One of the armed and dangerous terror suspects wanted by the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) surrendered to Nyeri police.

Robert Gathongo Nginjiri aka Abdurahman Hija, nicknamed the Prophet, surrendered with the leaders of the Ten Houses.

Investigators say Gathongo, from Nyeri County, was among a gang that intimidated Nyeri residents.

He then allegedly fled to Somalia before joining Al-Shabaab and returning in 2016.

Gathongo was one of eight suspects recently listed by the DCI as being sent to the country to carry out acts of terrorism on behalf of Al-Shabaab.

Others were: Abdikadir Mohamed Abdikadir, allegedly responsible for planning the Dusit 2019 and 2010 attacks in Kampala, Peter Gichungu, Mohamud Abdi, Kassim Musa, Mohamed Ali Hussein, Ahmed Mohamed and Erick Njoroge.
