Storyline:Security, World

Three people were killed on Sunday when an IED explosion hit ambulance passing the area at Sangailu-Hulugho road, Garissa County.

Following six militants killed and one captured alive in the same area on Friday last week, North Eastern regional Commissioner Nicodemus Ndalana stated the gunmen escaped promptly “after we have deployed more personnel to pursue them but we will get as they face justice,” he said.

Garissa Governor Ali Korane said he was saddened by the heinous attack that killed the three in the ambulance.

“Those killed include the driver and a patient. I condemn this heartless attack, Perpetrators of terror in all forms must be defeated,” he said.

President Uhuru Kenyatta last month gave the North Eastern leaders 14 days to come up with an amicable solution on security challenges that have hurt education.

The attack comes at a time when the government is putting effort on militias who have infiltrated the region. More than 20 people have been killed in similar incidents in two months.
