On January 3, a suspected al-Shabaab returnee walked into a church in Kilifi County and asked to be prayed for.
The suspect, whose identity cannot be revealed due to ongoing investigations, sought help from the church to “reconnect with God”.
At the church, the 30-year-old man confessed his “sins” and said he wanted to repent for he had wandered away.
After the prayer, the man of cloth then decided to escort the suspect to the police where they both recorded statements before the suspect was arrested.
TRAINED IN SOMALIA
Sources close to the ongoing investigations revealed that the man confessed that he crossed into Somalia where he received training before returning to Kenya.
