Lorogon: Schools Closed As Tension Remains High

Lorogon: Schools Closed As Tension Remains High

Heavy gunfire rocked Lorogon Village in Turkana at dawn on Saturday as residents and Anti Stock Theft officers tried to repulse bandits that had attacked the village, injuring one security officer and two residents.

Dozens of residents are fleeing the area following renewed raids.

This comes just days after at least four people were killed and scores injured in a siege at the same village by bandits. 

The raids are reported to be over boundary disputes with the raiders demanding that Lorogon residents relocate.
