Friday June, 21, 2019 - Detectives from Anti-Terror Police Unit (ATPU) arrested a senior police officer who reportedly shared the gory pictures of colleagues killed in Saturday’s Improvised Explosive Device (IED) attack in Wajir.
The officer identified as Wilfred Maiyo is a Police Inspector based at Kahawa West Administration Police post.
According to police sources, the officer shared the pictures with blogger Robert Alai, who was arrested on Tuesday and questioned over the photos.
Alai has since been detained for 14 days by Milimani Law Courts Senior Resident Magistrate, Sinkiyian Tobiko.
According to the police, Alai was arrested for 'disclosure of information in relation to terrorist activities'.
Alai was in court alongside Patrick Safari, a prison warder who also posted the photos online.
President Uhuru Kenyatta is said to have asked Inspector General of Police, Hillary Mutyambai, and Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI), George Kinoti, to ensure all those who posted gory pictures of 10 police officers killed in Wajir are brought to justice.
