An SAS unit ‘snatched’ Woolwich terror suspect Michael Adebolajo in Kenya as he prepared to enter war-torn Somalia, the Daily Mail can reveal.
Adebolajo was flown back to the UK but then allowed to roam the streets unchecked for the next two and a half years.
Well this is quite something, according to the daily mail in 2010 MI5 become so concered about the movements of Michael Adebolajo that when they
discovered he was heading into Kenya so he could go to Somalia and join up with militants the sent the SAS to capture him.
This apparently comes form sources in Kenya and contradicts previous claims that it was Kenyan authorities that caught him. They claim that the SAS
caught him in a dramatic helicopter assault.
the article also claims that despite taking this action when he returned to the UK they put him on low-level watch.
According to the Telegraph
the SAS, working alongside MI5, swooped in a helicopter operation in November 2010 - contradicting earlier reports Adebolajo was arrested by local
police as he tried to cross the border.
n the “text book snatch” heavily armed soldiers, working alongside local military, carried out a surveillance operation then swooped in a remote
area of the country, Kenyan sources have claimed. They described the operation as “highly dramatic”.
A source told the newspaper: “The SAS took the lead role.”
Seems like the source in Kenyan and also seems like the source is making some very interesting claims that for obvious reasons the UK government is
refusing to comment on.
but what makes this story really interesting is that it is being claimed else wear in the media that British Security Services aranged for him to be
released form the Kenyan's after the SAS handed him over to them.
British security services arranged for Woolwich terror suspect Michael Adebolajo to be freed from a Kenyan jail after he was snatched by a unit
of the SAS as he tried to enter war-torn Somalia, it was claimed today.
The British authorities believed that arranging his release from Kenya in 2010 would help persuade him to become an informant for MI5 and infiltrate
radical Islamist groups.
The 28-year-old was one of seven men held by an SAS unit working with Kenya police and soldiers as they tried to cross into Somalia by speedboat to
join the Al Shabaab terror group.
