Mohamud Jamal, 40, was arrested on January 31 for his involvement in a gruesome massacre when al-Shabaab terrorists stormed a bus in Mandera, north-east Kenya, executing everyone who could not cite verses from the Koran.
Two weeks later, he was allegedly involved in a second attack on a quarry in the same region, where 36 workers were massacred after being surprised by the terrorists while they slept.
According to NRK, Jamal emigrated to Norway in the 1980s, settling in the east of the country. He is one of six suspects scheduled to appear in court in Nairobi next Monday, alongside Salim Abubakar Kitonga, the man police suspect is the mastermind behind the massacres.
