Tension is high in Baragoi, Samburu North Sub-county after two people were killed and one injured in two separate attack incidences on Monday.
A nine-year-old boy died on the spot after he was struck by a bullet on the chest while herding livestock at Natiti area at around 11am.
A few hours later, in the evening, a boda boda operator and his passenger were seriously injured in what is believed to be a revenge attack in Baragoi town.
A clinical officer at Baragoi Sub-county Hospital, Simon Kanguro said the rider succumbed to a bullet injury on his head as his passenger was also injured.
“The boda boda man succumbed to bullet injury, he was shot on the left side of the head from behind,” he said.
The clinical officer said the passenger was received at the hospital with an injury on the left shoulder.
“The victim is stable and out of danger she has a soft tissue injury but we have admitted her in the hospital for more treatment,” he said.
The residents are now calling upon security agencies to take action that will lead to the arrest of suspects who launched the two attacks.
“These people have killed someone who was working to earn a living after beheading a boy who was looking after livestock. The government please intervene and help us here in Baragoi, we have been living in peace,” Mr Chobo Lolkolonyei, a resident appealed.
