The terrorist who was arrested today in mid-morning was on-board a United Nations (UN) vehicle.
Kenya’s Intelligence Service towards the end of last week issued an alert for three lost UN- vehicle number plates.
The arrested terrorist is believed to be a leader of an active Al-Shabaab operative cell in the country.
Al Shabaab militants believed to have stolen the number plates with an aim of using them in mounting suicide vehicle bound improvised explosive devices (SVBIED) and later conducting attacks on soft targets in Kenya.
The terror operative has been taken in custody for interrogation.
