Two people died when suspected Al-Shabaab militants attacked a road construction camp at Dagaxkut, Wajir County.
Speaking Saturday morning Tarbaj Deputy County Commissioner Andrew Mwiti said the militants, also destroyed mobile provider Safaricom’s communication masts.
Mwiti said the suspects used an Improvised Explosive Device to bring down the mast.
Mwiti said the suspects then proceeded to the nearby Kotulo police post that is under construction and vandalized buildings.
He said intelligence reports indicate the attackers might have been locals who are Al-Shabaab sympathisers.
The latest attack comes weeks after two masts were brought down in Mandera County by the Al-Shabaab militia.
Mwiti called residents to be vigilant during this festive season and work with security agencies in ensuring peace prevails.
