An update about the AL SHABAAB attack in Garissa County today! KUDOS to Kenya Police


Today, 22/9/2016 at about 00:15 hrs ,Hamey Police Camp,within Garrisa County was attacked by suspected Al Shabaab terrorists.

Over 50 terrorists attacked the Police patrol Base in two Landcruisers but the officers in the camp managed to repulse them amid fierce exchange of fire.

The attackers retreated and later returned in a bigger number in a lorry and fired 3 bombs into the camp destroying some tents thus forcing our officers to withdraw for cover.

Following subsequent reinforcement, all officers have been accounted for except two. One has been airlifted to Nairobi for specialized treatment after suffering gun shots.

Three were taken to Dadaab hospital with minor injuries. It was brave of our officers to have managed such a big number of heavily armed attackers.The operations to pursue the attackers is on going .

More information will follow as we monitor the operation.
