    The bus is said to have been heading from Lafey to Mandera town when the unfortunate incident took place.

    Mandera Governor Ali Roba has confirmed the incident. Police fear that the number of casualties reported may increase.

    Those injured are receiving treatment from the Mandera County Referral Hospital. 

     

    The incident came days after security agents after al Shabaab militants were repulsed trying to attack a police camp in Elram area, Elwak, Mandera County.

    The militants had shot  several times towards the local Anti-Stock Theft Unit (ASTU) camp which prompted a response from security agents.

    An official from the area indicated that such instances had become common.

    “They on regular basis target the security camps to provoke a war. We know some remnants are operating in this area and still hunting them,” an officer stated.
