Wajir County Police Commander Stephen Ng’etich, who confirmed the incident, said they were waiting for a detailed report from a team of officers that had been dispatched to the scene.

“A group of armed men ambushed a bus that was travelling to Mandera on Friday evening but we are yet to get information on the casualties,” he said.
