The National Police Service has announced that it will issue the KSh 60 Million bounty placed on the heads of the 3 terror convicts that were arrested last week. 

In a statement issued on Sunday, NPS said it is committed to fulfilling the promise they made to members of the public. 

This is after Kenyans raised concerns on social media platforms on whether the state will keep its side of the bargain. 

"The Government acknowledges that the rearrests of the suspects were made possible with the support from members of the public. Indeed, the accounts of several people who separately claim to have played a role in the capture have been reported extensively in the media," reads part of a statement from NPS. 

However, the police have not yet established the rightful owners of the KSh 60 Million bounty since several people are claiming to have aided in the capture. 

"The Government intends to honor its pledge on the cash reward offer. This will, however, be subject to a due verification process to ensure the reward goes to deserving recipients. 

The security nature of the incident and the risk of harm to those who genuinely aided the capture of the high-value trio may militate against a full public disclosure of the eventual beneficiaries of the cash award."
