A Kwale court has issued a warrant of arrest against Nyali Legislature Mohamed Ali over a surety he stood for a terror suspect.

This comes after a terror suspect Noordin Hassan Abdallah also known as Kamanda failed to appear in court on October 4 and November 1, 2021.

The MP was earlier been summoned to court on October 4 but he apparently failed to show up forcing the Kwale Principal Magistrate to issue the warrant of arrest.

Ali had stood surety for Abdallah who absconded bail for an offence he is facing in the court.

Abdallah is charged with being in possession of radicalisation articles.

He was arrested in 2019 in Shimoni area, Kwale County while allegedly conducting recruitment and radicalisation of local youths into Islamic State terror group and was later charged and released on bond.

Officials say Abdallah is an associate of Salim Rashid Mohamed alias Chotara alias Turki an ISIS operative who was recently filmed conducting a beheading in DR Congo.

He had in March 2020 been arrested in Mombasa after being captured on CCTV mugging two people, one of them a school girl.

He was later released on bond.

Police say they have not seen him since then.

While responding to the court order on Tuesday, the MP said he was not aware of the said warrant.

He said as far as he was concerned, the case is scheduled for hearing on November 18.

He said the suspect had been arrested over a different matter of possession of marijuana and he stood on a 50,000 shillings surety bond.

“I don’t know how it changed because the last time I tried to withdraw the surety they refused and insisted I bring him in court,” he said.
