Mandera Governor attacked by terrorists

13 March 2015, 13:12 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Mandera Governor Ali Roba has survived yet another attempt on his life after suspected terrorists attacked his convoy.

Roba was attacked by unknown militia Friday morning as he went on a field excursion with his team. The attack took place along the Arabia, Omar Jilo road.

No one has yet been reported dead in the attack, though six people were injured in the attack, two critically.

The injured were taken to the Lafey District Hospital with the critical ones taken to the Elwak Hospital.

Governor Roba was not injured in the attack but he told News24 on phone that he would try find out as soon as possible the people and motive behind the attack.

" We have been attacked while on a mission. Thankfully no one is dead but there are injuries. We thank God for his mercies," he said.

It is understood that the attackers used a rocket propeller to hit the convoy of six vehicles.

A policeman on the ground told News24 that he was surprised no one died in the attack.

" It was well planned. It sounds like Al Shabaab but we cannot be sure because the Governor has been attacked previously," the officer that did not want to be named said on phone.

In October last year, the Governor escaped unhurt after an improvised explosive device IED blew up as his convoy passed through Mandera Town.

He escaped unhurt while his bodyguard was injured the attack.
