The attack that was reportedly staged by four heavily armed terrorists and a suicide bomber who blew himself up on arrival saw more than 700 hostages rescued by the end of a multi-agency security operation on Wednesday morning.

So far, four more suspects accused of plotting last week’s terror have been arraigned in court as investigations into the incident intensify.

The latest development coming as four of the eight suspects on the police terror list surrendered to authorities Monday a day after their names were published.

Gaddafi alias Munene,  Ali Abdi Kachora, Boru Abdi Bidu and Ramadhan Rasho now in police custody as detectives follow possible collusion with those who executed the attack.

The suspects were among five others listed as armed and dangerous. Others included Violet Kemunto alias Khadija, Dido Mohamed Fugicha alias Dingdong, Hussein Adan Hussein alias Etto and Boru Abdi Bidu as well as one unnamed middle aged man.

An operation by a contingent of security forces is currently underway with police saying they have crucial leads that will help nab perpetrators of the attack.
