Demonstrations break following another bandit attack in Isiolo.

After three people were slain on Saturday by bandits who stole 200 cattle, there were significant protests in  Isiolo.

Officers are attending to the resident’s concerns, according to police spokesperson Resila Onyango.

“Out teams are on the ground helping to address the issue,” she said.

One of the three fatalities at Mlango in Burat ward was a National Police Reservist.

The attackers, according to the authorities, crossed from neighbouring Samburu County in search of camels in the area.

This occurred a few days after a similar conflict left two other people dead in the Loruko area.

Before unleashing havoc on the police reservist who attempted to resist them, the armed gang had attacked the two herders and shot them dead.

According to the police, the attackers took the deceased’s gun and untold quantities of livestock from the region.

The affected people are now tense and afraid of reprisals as a result of this.

According to Isiolo County Commissioner Geoffrey Omoding, efforts to find the culprits and retrieve the gun are ongoing.

In order to strengthen an operation against the gangs robbing Isiolo, he claimed, more personnel had been sent to the region.

“We are coordinating with other leaders to address this menace,” he said.

According to police, the attack takes the total number of fatalities reported in the area over the past two weeks to 10.
