The two students from Egerton University, Njoro Campus were allegedly using a fake Facebook account to cause alarm. The false terror threats have since caused panic and the students have since been arrested for interrogation.

Titus Ngare Nyagah, an Economics & Sociology student in his second year and Alex Wachira told the police that they were just doing it for fun.

Njoro sub-county commissioner Mohamed Noor revealed that the arrests were made at 1am this morning following a long search by police. The account under questioning has the name Robert Mungai aka Robert Muhamed Blues on it.

Some students have said that they’ve fled the main campus and its other branches for fear of an impending attack.

This incident pops up just 48 hours after four terrorists attacked Garissa University and killed 148 people and injured scores others. They were killed by special police forces after a 12-hour-long battle. Two suspects have been arrested over the siege.
