Inspector General of police Joseph Boinnet said there was no cause of alarm and that the man and another one who had been arrested would be freed. “Truth is someone was found with a motherboard of a small transistor radio in his bag at the security check as he queued to access the outer gate and was arrested for further questioning.
There was no attempt to sneak a bomb,” said Boinnet. He added the man who was carrying the gadget told police his relative gave it to him to bring it to Nairobi for repairs. “He was given the gadget by someone in Garsen to bring to another person in Nairobi for repairs,” said Boinnet. Other officials said a team was sent to Garsen to find the said source and confirmed that the arrested man had been handed the gadget to take it to a technician for repairs. See also:
