Deputy President William Ruto’s Turkish business associate Harun Aydin has this morning been intercepted at the Wilson Airport after landing from Uganda.
The Turkish national was among the team scheduled to accompany Deputy President William Ruto during his botched trip to Uganda earlier this week.
Aydin was the only non-Kenyan on the flight manifest of their privately chartered plane.
Harun was detained at Wilson Airport after landing from Uganda.
According to Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi, after his arrest at Wilson Airport, Aydin was later booked at Kilimani Police station.
“Turkish Investor Harun Aydin arrested at the Airport. I boarded the same police vehicle but upon reaching Kilimani police station, he was locked in the cell leaving me outside. I had made it clear that if indeed Aydin is a terrorist, then I should be the first one to be arrested,” read part of Sudi’s Facebook post.
A quick search on the internet shows you that Mr Aydin is an old-time terror suspect who was once arrested in Germany in late 2001 and was found carrying suspicious luggage which included camouflage clothing, materials to produce explosives, as well as a chemical weapons protective suit.
According to The New York Times, Aydin was at that time a leading member of a militant group in Cologne, Federation of Islamic Associations and Communities, led by Muhammed Metin Kaplan alias the caliph of Cologne.
Mr Aydin was attempting to board a flight to Tehran in Iran.
