Police place a Ksh 2M bounty on Mandera quarry attack mastermind

Police have offered a Ksh 2 million reward for anyone who provides information leading to the arrest of Mohammed Dubow who is suspected of masterminding the Mandera quarry attack.

Police Spokesman George Kinoti says the reward was offered following reports that Dubow sneaked into the country from Somalia less than a week ago.

Police believe he was involved in the July 2015 attack where 14 quarry workers were killed by Al Shabaab militants.

A similar attack had occurred in December 2014 with 36 workers losing their lives.

According to police, Dubow was born in Gondondowe, Somalia and belongs to the Marehan Ali Dhere clan.

He is about 25 years old and speaks both Somali and Swahili.

Police believe he is in the country planning an attack on innocent Kenyans.

In July 2015, an unknown number of Al Shabaab militants sneaked into the country from Somalia and raided Soko Mbuzi area inhabited by non-locals aided by local collaborators killing 14 people and leaving 11 injured.

The militants had targeted 150 people who live in the estate but were repulsed by the Kenya Defence Forces and police.
