One of the felled terrorist had rented the house "number 9" in a leafy street of Ruaka suburb within the neighbouring Kiambu County.
The neighbourhood has unusually high perimeter walls. His monthly rent was estimated at between Sh40,000 to Sh50,000 per month.
Some neighbours who spoke to the media described him as a social person who never passed anyone without offering greetings.
But they say his spouse was different. She is said tk have covered her head and face most of the time and she was never friendly.
It is believed the terrorist was often on a "move in move out" basis and hardly did people know much about him Sources close to police investigators say the man had dug a huge hole in his house.
