TERRORIST ATTACK AT FINO POLICE STATION AND AP CAMP

Today at about 2:00 am, more than 100 suspected Alshabaab terrorists attacked Fino Police Station and AP camp in Mandera County, resulting in a fierce exchange of fire between the terrorists and our officers.

In the firefight, unknown number of the terrorists are believed to have been killed while others sustained serious injuries. Four of our gallant officers and one National Police Reservist sadly lost their lives. The attackers managed to set ablaze one of the camps and destroyed a nearby Safaricom Communication mast rendering the area out of GSM reach

.

The attackers had earlier planted IED’S along the road leading to the camps which slowed down movement of officers from nearby camps to support the officers under attack in Fino.

We have since identified the leader of the group that carried out the attack as Jamaa Nuh Abdille, who fled with others after the attack to Somalia, and we are hot on their trail.

We once again call upon all Kenyans to be vigilant and report any movement by suspicious persons along the Kenya/Somalia border to the Police or any security agency, or through the Toll Free National Police Service emergency numbers 999 and 112 for immediate action.
