One person nursing wounds at Nakuru Level 5 after an attack at Kapedo

A 21-year old young man is nursing gunshot injuries at the Nakuru Level 5 Hospital after he was shot on the left knee at conflict–prone Kapedo in Turkana.

Abollo Ekiru was shot on the left knee at Kapedo in Turkana at around mid day on Wednesday.

Through a phone interview, his brother Ronald Ekai says he was from his daily duties in a mjengo with his colleagues when the incident happened.

Ekiru who his nursing injuries at Nakuru PGH has called on security agents to beef up security in the area.

Since the November 2014 massacre that left 22 officers dead, Kapedo has been marked a banditry hotspot and is avoided by locals and security agents.

The bordering communities have been in conflict for many years over resources for their animals in the area.
