The US government is offering a reward of up to $10 million to anyone who provides information leading to the arrest of Mohamud Abdi Aden, who was behind the January 15, 2019 DusitD2 attack.
This was announced in a joint media briefing by the United States US ambassador H.E Meg Whitman and the Director DCI Mr Mohamed Amin at the DCI headquarters, according to DCI reports.
Deputy assistant secretaries Julie Cabus and Paul Houston, who also present at media briefing, are in chargeof Training & Threat Investigations respectively, at the Bureau of Diplomatic Security.
Mohamoud Abdi Aden aka Mohamoud Abdirahman was reportedly part of the cell that planned the DusitD2 Hotel attack, the last major terrorist attack in Kenya 4 years ago.
In his remarks, DCI Director Mr. Mr. Mohammed Amin, acknowledging DCI’s long-standing partnership with US law enforcement, added that the sharing of intelligence and information through this collaboration has resulted in recent arrests and extraditions of two fugitives who are internationally wanted in the US for trading and endangered wildlife in exchange for trophies.
“In this case, we are working with members of the community to bring Mohamud Abdi Aden, also known as Mohamud Abdirahman, to justice.” He added.
DCI asks those with information that will lead to arrest of the culprit to call a toll free number 0718712366 in Kenya or 252684343308 in Somalia.
