‘Al-Shabaab militants’ raid police camp, attack officers

By Nyaboga Kiage.

A police officer attached to Amuma camp in Mandera County was on Wednesday morning (December 2) injured after suspected Al-Shabaab militants raided the facility.

Jason Golo was shot in the elbow and back by the suspected
terrorists, who fired three bullets at him. Golo is receiving treatment at the
Hagadera Hospital in Garissa County.

The whereabouts of another police officer, Fredrick Okwiri,
remains unknown.

The suspected Al-Shabaab militants raided the camp early Wednesday and embarked on a shooting spree, deflating all the four tyres of a police vehicle — Toyota Land Cruiser of registration plate GK A931A — and, thereafter, bombing the camp’s armoury using a rocket-propelled grenade.

According to police officers, who took part in repulsing the
suspected terrorists, the shoot-out lasted 15 minutes.

“After sensing that we had overwhelmed them, the terrorists
escaped,” said the cop, who spoke to K24
on condition of anonymity.

A head-count was, thereafter, conducted to establish if
there were any police officers missing. It was then that the camp’s bosses
realised that Fredrick Okwiri’s whereabouts could not be ascertained.

“We have launched a spirited search for him,” said one of
the police camp’s bosses.
