25 arrested over Turkana police killings

07 November 2014, 15:51 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - 25 people have been arrested over the killings of 22 people, including 19 police officers in Kapedo, Turkana.

The 25 have been arrested as a police crackdown on illegal possession of guns and firearms in the area continues.

Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo says that the 25 have been arrested and that he expects to have news of more arrests in the coming days.

" We have so far arrested 25 people in connection with the killings," he said Friday in Nairobi.

He also said that the hunt for the criminals will move to neighbouring regions after a directive by president Uhuru Kenyatta to have the killers arrested and prosecuted as soon as possible.

Kimaiyo was speaking at a function to announce new changes to the police structure in the country.

He said that the cases of banditry are being closely looked at and will be dealt with accordingly with time.

Reports said that the attackers mistook the police for an invading tribe. Tribal violence in northern Kenya, often over cattle, is common.

President Kenyatta ordered Pokot leaders to turn over those responsible for the attack immediately. The tribe asked that they be given two weeks to do so.

In another recent attack, in October, armed bandits attacked two vehicles belonging to an advanced security team and killed three officers and two civilians.
