Police injured in shootout with herders

11 March 2014, 16:54 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - An administration police officer was Tuesday admitted at a Nanyuki hospital after he was injured during a shootout with herders from Isiolo county.

The officer was in a contingent of police officers who rushed to evict the herders who were grazing their cattle at Tasia Conservancy near the Laikipia - Isiolo border.

While confirming the incident, area Deputy County Commissioner (DCC) Benedict Nduva said the officer is in stable condition, out of danger and recuperating well.

Nduva confirmed that the incident occurred within Tasia Lodge near Sieku location when pastoralists from Kipsing division, Isiolo County, crossed over to Laikipia County.

He added that the pastoralists, believed to be of Samburu origin, forcefully drove more than 2 000 cows into the conservancy and started grazing them without consulting the Tasia conservancy management.

The conservancy management reported the matter to the Dol Dol police station, which sent police officers to the scene to evict the grazers but on arrival, they became wild and started shooting at the police.

Police retaliated and a fierce exchange of fire followed. In the process, one of the officers was shot on the right arm.

"The invaders were moved out of the conservancy when reinforcement from Nanyuki police station was deployed," noted Nduva.
