Turkana - Tullow Oil said on Saturday it had suspended drilling operations on two blocks in Turkana County due to security concerns, after local residents held protests demanding that they be given a fair share of jobs at the sites.
"We have temporarily suspended our operations across Block 10BB and Block 13T in Turkana East and Turkana South sub-counties. The priority at the moment is to ensure the safety and security of our staff," Tullow said in a statement.
