Al -Shabaab Militants steal Jubilee's property

The militants struck shortly after Governor Ali Roba’s rally.

The vehicle which belonged to a former civic leader and branded in Jubilee Party colours was hijacked by unknown number of militants.

According to the Nation, Mandera South police boss Charles Chacha said the incident was reported at about 5pm Friday and that the driver and a passenger are missing.

“We received a report of hijacking of a vehicle that was returning to Bore Hole 11 town after dropping party supporters at Falama area near Kenya Somalia border and the rescue operation is underway,” said Mr Chacha.

Police reports indicate that the vehicle had dropped Jubilee Party supporters, who had attended Governor Ali Roba’s rally at Kotula town on Thursday.

“The issue has been taken over by our military inside Somalia where we believe it was commandeered to but the driver and another passenger are yet to be found,” Chacha affirmed.

The police boss said security personnel in the area were on high alert and asked members of the public to cooperate with authorities to secure the region area before, during and after elections.

The incident has caused panic among locals in the area that has experienced weeks without reports of any terror-related cases.
