Laikipia - The ongoing security operation will go on despite criticism from civil society groups claiming that it is being done in an inhuman way.
Nairobi County police commander Benson Kibue said there are no reports of police taking bribes in the operation and noted that it is going to done until the country is secure.
Speaking at Njogu-ini village in Laikipia Central Sub County during the burial of Francis Murage who was one of the officers who died in the terror attack at Pangani Police station, Kibue noted that the war against terrorism will be fought to the end.
"The amnesty given by the president for criminals to surrender fire arms is still on, they should do so before it ends," Kibue said.
He said that they are at liberty to give the arms even without disclosing their identities through any recognized authority including churches.
He noted that so far they have received eight fire arms some of which were placed along the road.
He however cautioned those willing to surrender the weapons to avoid placing them in unsecured places as they may land in other criminal’s hands.
Murage, 54, who left two widows and five children, was bombed alongside another officer who was buried in Uasin Gichu County.
He was accorded a hero’s burial with 21 gun salute.
Police Inspector General through Kibue offered KES 1 million for educating the officer’s children.
Kibue at the same time defended the officers for the action they took to enter into the ill fated car without checking what was in noting that whatever they did was within the law.
