Nairobi - A GSU officer shot himself dead in an apparent suicide case in Kapedo.
The GSU officer used his own gun Wednesday night to end his life. The reason for doing so is yet to be known.
Rift Valley GSU coordinator Osman Warfa bemoaned the loss.
" This is a big loss for us because we are struggling to raise numbers for security operations and also the loss of life is bad for the family of the deceased, " he said.
Warfa said that the group in Kapedo is fighting banditry in the Turkana and Baringo regional border.
He said that members of the officer's team were helping with investigations into the matter.
" We are looking at why he has chosen to do so and will release details as soon as we have them to the family," he added.
The area has seen a number of GSU officers killed in the line of duty and according to sources is usually not liked by officers sent to serve there for its rough terrain and never ending danger.
