General Service Unit (GSU) personnel have arrested a suspected Alshabaab militia and recovered a cache of weapons within the Milimani area, Lamu County, Kenya's Coast.
The arrest occurred following an intelligence-led operation to flush out remnants of Alshabaab militants hiding in Boni forest.
The suspect is reportedly part of a group of other militants believed to have recently staged a foiled attack on a National Police Service camp.
He had a visible suspected gun-inflicted wound on the left leg above the ankle allegedly sustained in the previous foiled attack.
"During the meticulous operation, our officers recovered 1 RPG launcher, 1 RPG heat warhead, 1 booster, and 2 booster housing," said the National Police Service.
The suspect has since been placed in custody as security teams are out to pursue his accomplices believed to be holed up in the Boni forest.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
