Two Cuban doctors working in Lamu County, have abruptly left the region.

It was reported that the medics decided to vacate the county which borders Somalia following the abduction of two of their colleagues last Friday, in Mandera County.

The same move by the health workers was also witnessed in Wajir, Garissa and Tana river counties over the weekend.

It was alleged that the missing foreign doctors had been kidnapped by Al Shabaab militia.

The whereabouts of the medical practitioners are unknown after it was claimed that they were ambushed while travelling on an identified road.

Further reports noted that the terrorists killed the officer that was guarding the doctors.

One suspect arrested over kidnapping of 2 Cuban doctors

Police Spokesman Charles Owino had remarked that one suspect had been apprehended for questioning.

According to Owino, the driver of the vehicle who had survived the ordeal, was in police custody to give a statement on the incident.

He further revealed that kidnappers had used two probox cars to block the vehicle ferrying the doctors and the Administration Police (AP) officer.

UPDATE

The story was updated at 12.09 pm to include that other Cuban doctors had also vacated three more counties namely Wajir, Garissa and Tana River counties.
