Most wanted terrorist shot dead

Elsewhere, a couple was found murdered in cold blood and hid under a bed on a Mombasa beach.

Police shot the suspect after a successful raid in his house in Likoni, Mombasa and added that the suspect has been on the list of most wanted fugitives for a long time.

"We suspect he was in Somalia in the last three years. He returned two weeks ago," area police Mr Benjamin Rotich said.

Murdered couple

Meanwhile, a couple was on Thursday found murdered in their house in Shelly Beach, Likoni.

The bodies of the 47-year-old man and his 27-year-old wife were found under their bed in the locked master bedroom.

A neighbour said the couple’s relative raised the alarm after their three children were unable to access their parents' room as it was locked from inside.

The children, aged 11, nine and seven years, called their relative when they did not get a response from their parents.

"The relative came all the way from Maungu and asked for help where we broke the door and found the bodies," said the neighbour who requested anonymity.

Likoni OCPD Benjamin Rotich said police were yet to get any clue on the murder as the bodies did not have any physical injuries.

"We will only get further into this when the post-mortem is conducted but we cannot rule out strangulation," said Mr Rotich.

He added that they are yet to make any arrests and disclosed that the bodies of the slain have been taken to a Mombasa mortuary.
