IG Joseph Boinnet

Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet said that the National Police Service will cater for all funeral expenses of GSU officer killed in the DusitD2 business complex attack.

On Tuesday the IG also said that the police service was also building a house in his rural home in Taita Taveta.

The family of the late Japhet Ndunguja Nuru had said that funeral arrangements were underway and had an MPesa Paybill number set up under the account name ‘Japhet Funeral Fund’.

Dusit complex attack

The 28-year-old , who was a General Service Unit (GSU) officer in Ruaraka, was shot to death by terrorists, all of whom were killed in the siege.

Officer Nuru was among the 21 people who perished in the attack that saw joint security teams from the GSU, National Police Service, Recce Squad and Kenya Army swiftly respond.

The announcement comes barely hours after memorial service was held for six employees of Cellulant, who were killed at the Dusit business complex attack.

Suspects surrender

Top government officials including ICT Cabinet Secretary Joe Mucheru attended the memorial service. 

Meanwhile, three people on a terror watch list surrendered to police in Isolo County on Monday but their parents said they were innocent and in danger.

They are Abdi Ali Kanchora, Boru Abdi Bidu and Ramadhan Wario Bonaya (alias Rasho).
