Terror convicts on their way to Somalia after breaking out of prison are back in prison after the Anti-terror police arrested them.
Anti-terror police in Enzio forest in Kitui County’s Mwingi East apprehended the terror suspects.
Musharaff Abdalla alias Alex Shikanda (34), Joseph Juma Odhiambo (30), and Mohammed Ali Abikar (35) are among the defendants.
