  |   Kenya News

A foreigner suspected to be linked to terrorist activities was on Tuesday arrested in Iten town.

The man, who had no identification documents, was arrested after residents reported him to police claiming the suspicious man was engaging in criminal activities in the region.

Security agencies including those from the Anti-Terror Police Unit (ATPU) have intensified surveillance in the North Rift region after last week's Dusit attack.

The suspect, Abiwahab Hassan Hussein, was presented before Eldoret senior principal magistrate Harrison Barasa who allowed police to hold him for seven days to facilitate completion of investigations.

“We need at least seven days to hold him and investigate the matter. I request to detain the suspect at Eldoret police station pending investigations," William Ndune, an ATPU officer, said.

The magistrate asked the police to ensure they finalise the investigations and return the suspect to court.
