According to reports from residents, the assailants armed with AK 47 riffles invaded the village, shooting in the air to scare away people before burning an abandoned motorcycle and some houses.

 

 

 

 

 

A total of two schools, Kapkechir and Karne primaries were affected during the incident, where candidates had to flee for their lives.

 

 

 

 

 

“They then dashed straight to try and vandalize a stone-built house which some residents had locked themselves inside, with an intention of shooting dead all of them but luckily, police arrived before they managed, forcing them to run away”, Byumba Kumi elder John Wendot said.

 

 

 

Tension is now high in the area as frightened residents have began fleeing the volatile zone.

Turkana County Commissioner Muthama Wambua has assured candidates and supervisors in this year’s national examinations of their security as the KCPE examination starts today.

 

Speaking during the opening of the KCPE examination container at the county commissioner headquarters in Lodwar, Wambua said enough security personnel have been deployed to guarantee the security of the candidates.

 

“Two police officers have been deployed to each examination centre and we have extra security officers from Rapid Deployment Unit, border patrol unit who are on standby in areas like Kainuk, Kapedo, Kakong, Nadapal and Lokori to support the officers in charge of examination centre should need arise,” said Wambua.
