Security agencies find porn, condoms and booze in Al-Shabaab sex camp – PHOTOS

Security agencies on Monday found pornographic videos, condoms and alcohol bottles during a raid in an Al-Shabaab camp in Boni forest, Lamu county.

The discovery contradicts the public image of the Islamist militant group who denounce the West for its lax sexual mores.

The officers in the multi-agency operation who conducted the raid in the camp found sexual paraphernalia, alcohol bottles and drugs.

The officers were on patrol in the expansive forest on Monday afternoon when they came across the camp.

They suspect the militants deserted the camp in a rush because they left behind a lot of their personal effects including a laptop which has been taken for forensic audit.

Last week a woman narrated how, in one of the most tragic tales from the besieged terrorist hideout, she was gang raped by Al-Shabaab assailants.

The woman who spent more than three years being tormented by the gang recognized the men who gang-raped her when she saw their pictures splashed on mainstream media.

She identified the two as Issah Abdallah Ahmed aka Kauni and Ahmed Said Omar aka Dogo whom Kenyan police put on the terror watch list.

Several Al-Shabaab returnees who managed to escape from the group have also narrated how they suspect to have been drugged by the hardcore terrorists.

They also claimed on the presence of women in the camp who were kept in a separate area and only the older militants had access to them.

“Drinking and chewing mirraa the whole night was very normal to celebrate,” said one returnee.
