In another incident that took place on Monday, a group of unidentified gunmen ambushed a vehicle bound for Mandera and pumped it with bullets.
“The incident happened near Bambo Village between Rhamu-Elwak in Mandera county but no one was injured,” Dickson Githaiga, a journalist based in the area cited.
Eyewitness reports claimed that the vehicle first triggered an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) before the suspected Al Shabaab militiamen emerged from the bushes and sprayed it with bullets.
Still in the same county, the police boss, Jeremiah Kosiom, declared that public transport had been temporarily suspended following a possible terror threat on Saturday.
