One killed as Governors’ bodyguards engage Al Shabaab gunmen
A night guard was killed on Monday night when police guarding Governor Ali Roba’s residence engaged Al Shabaab gunmen in Mandera Town.
They stopped thinking that the “women” needed assistance when a fierce shootout ensued.
A night guard who was at a nearby primary school was shot by a stray bullet during the crossfire and bled to death.
The gunmen later escaped towards the Kenya- Somalia border.
This latest incident comes barely after another attack in Mandera town where six people were killed by the Al Shabaab in a residential plot.
Security was heightened in the town after Al-Shabaab militants overran a Somali military camp near the Kenyan border.
