The assailants took off with one police vehicle during the raid.

The attack came just hours after three people were killed by the terror group at Nyongoro in Witu, Lamu county.

North Eastern regional coordinator Mohamud Saleh said the militants escaped soon after the attack.

Saleh said a response team was sent to the place to access the damages caused.

“The militia stole one car after causing damage at the station but response teams are pursuing them. The place is remote and far,” he said.
