Police have recovered a cache of firearms and ammunition from four suspects in Nuno area, Garissa County.
In a surreptitious operation conducted by officers from AP’s elite Border Police Unit, 4 AK-47 assault riffles, over 540 rounds of 7.62x39mm calibre, machetes, ballistic helmets, military fatigues among other weapons were recovered from the four suspects.
The recovery followed intelligence reports from members of the public who notified the officers based at Modika Camp, of the four suspicious men who were in a white Toyota probox registration number KDL 610A.
The O/C Modika Camp mobilized his men who moved with speed & efficiency and intercepted the four identified as Osman Yussuf Gure, 40, Ali Farah Dagane, 39, Ahmed Mohamed Gedi, 29 and Abdullahi Ali Omar, 38.
Detectives are yet to establish the mission of the four suspects who were armed with the deadly arsenal and are currently grilling them at a highly guarded location.
DCI commends the swift action by the officers based at Modika, as the weapons would have had a devastating effect had they been used against innocent civilians.
