Night Attack in Turkana County: Armed Bandits Continue Assault Despite KDF Deployment


Armed bandits launched a night attack in Lomelo, Turkana County, shortly after the deployment of Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) officers to bandit-prone areas by President William Ruto.

The attackers opened fire aimlessly, forcing residents to flee their homes, with some spending the night in the cold and others seeking refuge in a neighboring village.

Although no resident was injured during the attack, the village administrator criticized the KDF for not providing aid and condemned the bandits for their continued assaults.

Despite Kenya’s administration’s efforts to gain satellite images from the United States Government to root out bandits in North Rift, the attacks persist.

This has led the Lomelo administrator to suggest disarmament as a potential solution.
