Confirming the attack, Wajir East OCPD Odhiambo Wambia says police are pursuing the suspects who executed the vicious gun attack.

The injured Kenya defence force officer David Mugambi, who is admitted at Wajir county hospital, says he was shot on the back as he waited for transport to a Meru assignment.
