Garissa police officers are currently on the lookout for a group of suspected bandits who ambushed and killed four security officers who were manning the region’s security.
According to claims from a trustworthy source of information, the suspects ambushed the deceased, killed them, and then robbed them of their firearms.
As a result, Garissa police officers have urged any people with information on the suspects’ whereabouts to report them to the nearest police station for further investigation and questioning.
A number of bandit attacks and Alshabaab attacks have increased in recent days. Over six individuals were slain by alleged Alshabaabs in Lamu just a few days ago, prompting the government to impose a curfew.
Kenyans who resorted to social media to offer their opinions and suggestions in response to the tragedy have urged President Uhuru Kenyatta to deploy additional Kenyan Defense Forces in areas where crime is on the rise.
Most Kenyans stated that this was the proper thing to do because police officers were being slain by the same people who appeared to have used the region’s police officers’ old practices and tactics.
This comes as the interior Cabinet Secretary, Dr Fred Matiangi, has imposed a curfew in various Lamu states following a suspected Alshabaab attack that lasted three days and left a number of civilians dead and numerous buildings destroyed by the supposed suspects.
