New development in Mandera Police Stations attack

The militants attacked two police stations on Friday at 1am.

Equally, Fino Ward (area in which attack happened) member of County Assembly Mr Saad Sheikh Ahmed reported the death of five officers amid fears planted explosives in the camps.

The deceased include four administration police officers and a reservist. The officers succumbed to bullet injuries after suspected terrorists attacked two police stations at dawn. The militants also destroyed a communication mast in the area cutting communication.

North Eastern regional commissioner Mohamud Saleh said the attackers targeted Administration and Kenya Police camps in the area.

"Locals are reporting seeing five bodies but we are moving there for more,” Mr Saleh said, basing his statistics on the counted bodies by locals.

100 attackers

Lafey Deputy County Commissioner Eric Oronyi says the 1am attack targeted both Kenya Police and Administration Police camps in Fino town, adding that the attackers, numbering between 70 and 100, arrived on foot.

“We suspect they divided themselves into three groups that aimed at AP and Kenya Police camps, and the communication mast,” he said.

He said the Kenya Police Reservists who guard the communication mast were overpowered by the heavily armed attackers.

“The communication mast (that was) being guarded by the police reservists was bombed and at the moment there is no (mobile phone) communication in Fino,” he said.
