“The group may also be targeting other guest houses and conference centres owned by churches as well as Christmas and New Year’s eve celebrations,” police said.

This occurs just four days after a man and his son were killed on Sunday morning in Mandera North when a vehicle was targeted by suspected al-Shabaab militants between Jabibar and Bamboo.

According to authorities, the two were driving a Landcruiser when the incident occurred on the Rhamo-Elwak route, and three other passengers also sustained injuries.

The group, according to the locals, wanted the car to use in Somalia, where they were under government pressure.

Three people were hurt, including National police reservists working at the Jabibar police station.

According to witnesses, the gang started shooting at the fast automobile when the driver wouldn’t slow down.

The region lies in close proximity to the Kenya-Somalia border and is frequently attacked by terrorists.
