Man arrested at Uhuru GSU parade not a terrorist: IG Boinnet
The Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet has denied reports that a suspect arrested at the General Service Unit (GSU) Training school during a passing out parade was a terror suspect.
President Uhuru Kenyatta was the chief guest at the passing out parade on Tuesday.
Police boss Boinnet confirmed that a suspect was arrested as he tried to access the school and handed over to anti-terror detectives for questioning.
He had in his possession a radio component.
“Someone was found with a motherboard of a small transistor radio in his bag at the security check as he queued to access the outer gate and was arrested for questioning,” he said.
