Makaburi ally arrested, police say he has taken over youth radicalisation

A close ally of slain Sheikh Sharif Abubakar alias Makaburi was on Saturday evening arrested by security agents in a joint counter terrorism operation over the recruitment of youths into al Shabaab using the Masjid Musa mosque.

Police have accused Mohammed Ali Abdallah of being the new kingpin behind the radicalization of Muslim youths in the Coastal region, succeeding Makaburi in inspiring youths to fight against non-Muslims and security organs.

Urban police station CID officer Edward Ronoh said Ali was arrested in his Majengo home after a tip-off from members of the public.

He said Ali was found with 15 DVDs believed to contain terrorism literature, a spy pen and a tape recorder allegedly stolen from an intelligence officer praying at Masjid Musa.
