Jubbaland Police seizes car with explosives heading to Kenya

The Police forces of Somalia’s Jubbaland state in southern Somalia have managed to capture a vehicle loaded with assembled explosives and bomb-making materials near Kenyan border.

After a tip-off from local residents, the Police in Dhobleey, located on Somali-Kenyan border seized two men driving the car packed with the IEDs before they crossed into Kenya on Monday.

Heybe Ahmed, the chief of Jubbaland Police in the town, told Radio Shabelle via the phone that they took the two men to a detention centre for inquiry.

Ahmed stated the Al Qaeda-linked Al shabaab group sent the two men to carry out a car bomb attack in somewhere in Kenya during the forthcoming vote for the next President.
