The police have revealed details of a terror attack plan in Nairobi.

“These terrorists were targeting a government building and we suspect they planned to attack a judicial building probably to rescue people being prosecuted for terror offences,” stated Boinnet.

One Mbarak Abdi Huka was murdered as two others of his abettors were detained in Merti, Isiolo after a tough confrontation with the police.

The police boss further disclosed that the vehicle used by the extremists had 80kg high grade explosives.

 “Were they to succeed it would have had an impact up to 200 metres. In our assessment, their objective was to create fear and panic, attract attention about their cause, shutter our social standing, discourage investment and hopefully influence government decisions on safeguarding the country,” added Boinnet.
