Nairobi Magistrate Court will tomorrow rule on whether to detain Marsabit Sheikh over alleged terror links.

This is after prosecution filed a miscellaneous application seeking Muslim cleric who was arrested in Marsabit Town over the weekend held for a month to enable police conclude investigations.

The prosecution want  Sheikh Guyo Gorsa held for the said period with a view to undertake detailed interviews with him to find out his co-conspirators .

ATPU says in its application that Gorsa was arrested due to his influence with the terror group , recruitment  and radicalization of youth’s in Marsabit to undertake terror activities.

ATPU claim that the Muslim cleric has other associates who are yet to be apprehended but their arrest is being vigorously pursued by the security agencies both within and out of the country.

The Sheikh has however opposed the application saying that police have no basis to detain him for four weeks pending trial.

Magistrate Martha Mutuku has been urged not to allow the  ATPU to hold him for more than two days as they have no sufficient evidence of him committing an offense.
