The three men identified as Abdalla Omar Masudi, Alloys Otieno alias Ismael John Otieno and John Muasya alias Yahya Muasya are believed to be heavily armed Al-Shabaab operatives.

They have been on the radar over links to the Somalia- based terrorist group and have been linked to terrorist activities and crime over the recent past.

On November 12, 2018 police conducted a raid on Abdalla’s house, recovering an AK47 rifle and a magazine with 30 rounds of ammunition.

Abdalla who hails from Ndavaya, Kwale County is also reported to have been training Al-Shabaab recruits in Kinango forest.

He has since gone into hiding after escaping the police swoop on his home.

Ismael and Yahya had previously been arrested by the police after the public tipped the police on their plans to travel to Somalia to join the armed terror group.

They were last seen in Bombolulu after being released due to lack of enough evidence to prosecute them.

They are believed to be headed towards the vast Kenya-Somalia border with the intention of crossing over to Somalia to join the extremist group.

Security agencies have appealed to the public to be on the lookout and report their whereabouts to the nearest police station or government department before they cause any harm to the public.
