A night guard was killed on Monday night when police guarding Governor Ali Roba’s residence engaged Al Shabaab gunmen in Mandera Town.The police officers who were patrolling the town were stopped by the Al Shabaab militia who were clad in buibui.

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.
