President Uhuru Kenyatta has directed internal security institutions to heighten vigilance and surveillance across the country following the unfolding security situation in the region.
The Head of State gave the instructions during Friday’s National Security Council meeting.
Uhuru gave the directive even as police officers put Sh50m bounty on five terror suspects.
The police put the bounty on missing terror convict Elgiva Bwire, Salim Rashid Mohammed, Mohammad Abubakar, Barigi Abdikadir Haila and Trevor Ndwiga.
Tales of Bwire took a new twist after the state announced he had gone underground and described him as armed and dangerous.
According to DCI, Bwire, either joined terror groups, including al Shabaab and ISIS, or went underground to plan attacks.
