 Police have arrested 12 terror suspects linked to the attack at Nairobi’s DusitD2 complex.  

Sources privy to the ongoing probe told Daily Nation that the suspects were arrested in the camp following calls from different leaders to find justice for the families of the deceased. 

The attackers were offered humanitarian aid as well as offer assistance to reach Nairobi before they launched the attack that left more than 20 persons dead. 

The arrest comes after three members believed to be part of the Al-Shabaab terror gang were arrested armed with AK-47 rifles and several rounds of ammunition in Hagadera refugee camp in Dadaab.  

Leaders and humanitarian groups have been calling for vigilance at the camp considering the increase of terror activities in the nation. 

In March 2017, President Uhuru Kenyatta had issued a directive on the closure of the camp following the Garissa University College attack, a move that attracted the wrath of human rights activists and other leaders from across the world. 

The activists faulted President Kenyatta for what they termed as forceful eviction of refugees from Kenya back to Somalia. 

The Dusit D2 attack has raised concern over what transpires at the camp without the knowledge of security authorities in the country.
