Sh5 milion bounty for Garissa attack mastermind
Highly places security sources have told Capital FM News that Gamadhere is believed to have planned the execution of the attack that has left at least 15 people dead and dozens more injured.
“The bounty on him has been revised to Sh5 million because he is believed to be the mastermind of this attack,” a security source revealed, saying official information on the matter will be communicated later.
Gamadhere was already wanted over last year’s attacks in northern Kenya, with Sh2 million bounty. Capital FM News has reliably established that the amount was revised upwards to facilitate his quick arrest and prosecution over the attacks.
Most of those killed in Thursday’s attack are students and two guards who were on duty when Al Shabaab militants stormed the university and opened fire indiscriminately.
The Kenya Red Cross says 50 students have been safely rescued from the hostels, although an unknown number of others are still held hostage.
