3 bandits storm police station in daring attack

Bandits storm the Suiyan police post in Samburu North and stole four assault rifles 200 rounds of ammunition in a daring attack.

Police noted that the three bandits armed with AK47 firearms raided the station at around 5 pm Wednesday and made away with AK47 rifle, three G3 rifles, nine G3 magazines containing a total of 180 rounds of ammunition and an AK47 rifle loaded with 30 rounds of ammunition.

The police at the police post complained that the suspects hold them hostage and the Samburu North Sub-County Police boss mobilized police officers from Marti police station, Baragoi police station and DCI Samburu North who intervened.

Police added that the attack was filed hours later since the region has poor network coverage.

The police post is erected 60 kilometres east of Marti police station and 40 kilometres from Baragoi police station.

It was revealed that the police officer in charge of the post was alone when the assailants struck.

Police officers have launched investigations into the alleged attack.
