A senior General Service Unit Commander (GSU), Emadau Abakol was shot dead by armed bandits on sunday when he was returning from a food distribution exercise at Kampedo.

This brutal attack comes days after another senior police officer from the same area was brutally murdered by the same bandits.

According to multiple reports, Abakol was killed during a deadly fire exchange with bandits just a few kilometres from Kapedo.

Three MPs are reportedly held up in the village after they visited the victims of last week’s attack and were distributing food.

MPs locked up in the village include Ali Lokiru (Turkana East), James Lomenen (Turkana South) and John Lodepe (Turkana Central).

With heightened tension in the area, residents are now locked up in their homes awaiting help from security agents.

However, the Kenyan government has however been working round the clock to ensure that kenyans living in dangerous areas get adequate security.
