6 NTSA Officials Arraigned in Court Over the Dusit D2 Terror Attack

  • 6 NTSA officials were arraigned in Milimani Law Courts in relation to the Dusit D2 terror attack.

    The six were identified as Cosmas Ngeso, Anthony Mjaka Kadu, Jacqueline Githinji, Charles Wangocho Ndungu Nderitu Irving, and Stephen Kariuki Mbaka.

    The officials were presented in court on a miscellaneous application which was postponed since it was past working hours.

    The prosecutors requested to be allowed more time to detain them, for more investigations to be conducted.

    Senior Principal Magistrate Martha Mutuku ruled in the prosecution’s favour, directing that the six NTSA employees be remanded until February 1, 2019, when the case would be heard.

    The six face charges of possible involvement in aiding and abetting the Riverside terrorist attack.

    The officials were arrested on allegations of being involved in the illegal issuance of the registration number of the vehicle used to carry the attackers to the scene.

    The ruling comes a day after another NTSA employee, Augustine Mulwa Musembi was arraigned in the Milimani Law courts on the same allegations.

    The court ruled that Musembi would be detained for 30 days to allow for thorough investigations.

    The arrests came after the DCI raided the NTSA headquarters in a bid to unearth the culprits behind the issuance of the fake registration details of the vehicle used during the Dusit attack.
