Speaking on Wednesday during a press conference in Parliament buildings, the legislators led by Fafi MP Barre Shill noted that if the situation is not improved, they will be forced to buy the guns from Somalia to protect their people.

They gave the Government two months to end terror attack in the region.

"If the State does not act, we will be forced to mobilise our people and purchase guns from Somalia so that we can protect ourselves," Shill said.

Others at the conference included Garissa MP Shukran Gure, Dadaab’s Mohamed Duale Mohammed Shidiye (Lagdera) and Ibrahim Abba.

The lawmakers demanded the State to hire Kenyan Police Reservists (KPR) to tighten security in the area.

This comes a day after an aspiring Mandera North MP, Abdi Ali’s convoy was attacked by gunmen leaving one woman dead and another man injured.
