Police in Garissa have arrested a most wanted and dangerous criminal.

Abdirahman Hajira, an Ethiopian national, was arrested by the public on Wednesday afternoon.

Hajira is believed to have killed a businessman, Mohamed Hassan Abdi,48, on Guled road with two accomplices before he was arrested.

The public chased the three for 30 minutes. Hajira was cornered a few metres from where the businessman had been killed. He hurled a grenade as he tried to escape but it did not explode.

The grenade was later detonated by KDF officers. Garissa county commissioner Rashid Khator said a ceska pistol and three bullets were recovered from him.

The three Ethiopians are said to have crossed into Kenya early this year through the Moyale border to Nairobi before travelling to Garissa.

Police said the three are behind killings and grenade attacks that have rocked the town in recent months.

“The arrest of one of the killers is crucial as he will give us more details. We will want to know his accomplices and those who have been sending them,” Khator said.

“we have been on their trail and we thank the public for assisting us arrest them.”

Khator said the suspects may be linked to the recent killings but investigations are underway.

“We will not allow people to kill our people. People should not settle their political or business rivalries in our town. We will pursue them until we get all of them,” Khator said.

Abdifatah Mohamed, who was shot in the thigh by the suspect, the three were armed with pistols.
