Speaking to journalists, Turkana County Commissioner Seif Matata disclosed that one of the attackers was a student.

"The preliminary information we have is that this attack was carried out by a student of the school in the company of other unknown people. There was a student who comes from South Sudan and he was suspended from school because of indiscipline," Matata said.

The County Commissioner highlighted that the said student threatened to burn the school.

"He was heard telling fellow students that he is going to burn the school or he will come back and avenge because of the suspension.

“Now what we are told is that early this morning he came with about three other people and killed the watchman. (They) proceeded to the boys' dormitory where they targeted particular students whom they thought were behind his suspension," Matata was quoted by the Nation.
