BY KORIR JUMA/CORRESPONDENT ,16TH MAY 2017- Police have launched investigation after Suspected Al Shabaab militants attacked a village in Mandera and killed a chief before abducting two police reservists Monday night.
The incident occurred at Omar Jillo in Lafey sub-County in the volatile border town which has faced similar attacks in the past – all blamed on the Somalia terror group.
They said that the gang escaped towards the Somalia border which is about seven kilometres away.
Omar Jillo is among towns in the area under a dusk-to-dawn curfew over insecurity linked to Al Shabaab terrorists.
The other towns are Mandera Town, Arabia, Fino, Lafey Kotulo and Elwak.
On Thursday last week, two quarry workers were killed in Elwak, Mandera following a suspected Al Shabaab attack.
