A second Muslim cleric arrested for allegedly aiding plans for the Garissa University College attack was on Tuesday detained for 30 days pending investigations.
The Anti-Terrorism Police Unit said Sheikh Mohammed Mursi from Mandera has been in constant communication with al Shabaab operative Mohamed Kuno.
Mursi appeared before Milimani resident magistrate Edda Agade on Tuesday alongside businessman Zadock Agutu.
The prosecution asked for more time to review the suspects’ phone and financial records.
Agutu, who was arrested after arrival from Somalia on April 17, was also detained for a month.
Muslim cleric Hassan Omar appeared in court on Monday for allegedly funding the al Shabaab.
He is facing a separate charge of being found in possession of two hand grenades and committing a terrorism act alongside his wife Fardosa Abdi.
Omar who was arrested last Friday was detained for 30 days to allow a probe.
Six suspects have been charged in court since the April 2 attack in which 147 died and 79 were injured.
