Two police officers die in early morning Al-Shabab attack at a Hotel outside Mandera Police Station.

Police officers were among three people who were killed when an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) exploded near Mandera Police Station.

According to reports, the incident happened early on Monday, March 25, 2024, at the Mama Samaki Hotel.

Witnesses said to the media that they heard a loud explosion in the sleepy village that killed two police officers and a woman who was believed to be the restaurant’s owner.

Two other individuals sustained injuries from the explosion.

Media reports indicated that a multi-agency team was immediately deployed to the scene of the explosion and a manhunt for the suspects attached to Al-Shabaab militia was launched.

A video clip of the scene showed a heavy cloud of black smoke at the joint with ambulance sirens suggesting medical personnel were already at the scene.

The eatery, which was made of iron sheets, was later burnt down after the explosion.

Detectives bursts Al-Shabaab militants while on attack mission in Kenya

In recent months, the government of Kenya has stepped up security within towns along the Kenya-Somalia border in an effort to secure the country from Al-Shabaab militants.

On Sunday, Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) officers ambushed a group of individuals who were caught assembling explosives at a camp in Garissa.

The three, who were caught at Alango area, were linked to Al Shabaab militia which has set base in the neighbouring Somalia.

The multi-agency team recovered the materials used to make IEDs as well as an AK47 riffle, 2 magazines, porches, and assorted foodstuffs.

The three suspects, however, escaped the officers’ dragnet, and a manhunt for their search was mounted. The three sustained injuries during the ambush.
