Tension as Armed Bandits Strike An Animal Vaccination Center Making Away With Over 1,000 Livestock

Armed bandits have reportedly struck an animal vaccination centre in Lakwamosing, Turkana East in Turkana County and managed to steal 1,500 herd of cattle that had been taken for vaccination. In the process, an innocent man who had brought his livestock to be vaccinated was shot dead.

Others fled the scene to protect their lives since the bandits were armed with sophisticated weapons that could have killed many of them. The cattle owners were not prepared for the theft since they were just ambushed when they least expected.

At the time of reporting not a single cattle had been recovered from the morning raid. The residents now claim that they fear for their lives since they don't know when the bandits will strike again. The security agencies are yet to start following the bandits who have now covered a long distance since the raid occurred.

Kenyans now want CS Fred Matiangi, the National Police Service, Directorate of Criminal Investigations and other security agencies to take action against the bandits. They have also urged leaders in those areas to wake up and defend their people.
