A Kenyan is missing after he and his three colleagues were attacked and robbed of two four-wheel drive vehicles in Bodhai area, near Kiunga at the Kenya- Somalia border.

The turn boy of one of the two missing vehicles was identified as George Mwiti. His three colleagues were released after being attacked and held by almost 20 gunmen believed to be members of Al-Shabab group, police said.

The four had driven to Somalia through the Kiunga border and dropped several kilogrammes of miraa and were driving back to Garissa when they were attacked.

One of the drivers identified as Amuar Abdi told the Standard on the phone the attackers were all Somalis and were in military jungle uniforms.

He said they were stopped on the way as they drove back to Garissa from Kiunga border before the heavily armed gunmen took control of their Toyota Land-cruisers.
