The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on Tuesday released two phone numbers that had been designated to receive information on the Dusit D2 Al Shabaab attack.

The message came moments after State House asked members of the public not to share clips of the attack.

"For all those that are receiving information. Please use this number 0722839978 belonging to Musa Yego, the Head of Flying Squad as the alternative to sharing the information.

"You can also use this number 0721141282 belonging to Mr Philip Ndolo [Nairobi County Police Commander]," the official DCI Twitter handle posted.
