A father of a man suspected to have been part of the Dusit attack was arraigned at the Nyeri Law Courts.

Abdul Kibiringi, however, protested his arrest saying that he was not part of the attack and his son was the wanted person by the security forces.

He was among three suspects who were on Monday arraigned at the Nyeri Law Courts in connection with the DusitD2 business complex attack that left 21 people dead.

Arrest

I was arrested while taking tea at a kiosk in town. Police told me I was wanted because of my missing son who is 26 years old and suspected to be connected to the attack," he said.

"There is no need to have me in custody," he added.

The suspects Abdul Kibiringi, James Mwai and Habiba Hunshur, will spend five days in police custody after detectives sought more time for investigations.

Detained

Anti-Terror Police Unit through Constable Newton Mwangi told the court that the suspects were arrested on Friday in Nyeri Town.

He further told the court that the investigators were yet to obtain their call log data from telecommunication providers.

The initial investigations show the suspects have a link of other suspects in the attack. Police are waiting for call log data to finalise the investigations,” Mwangi said.

Mwangi told the court the ATPU sleuths needed the five days considering the nature of the alleged offence, which the court granted.
