Shops were swiftly closed as the gunmen attempted to resist arrest, compelling Police to use heavy force to overwhelm them.

The reports come high on the heels of increased terrorist attacks in the East African nation.

Speaking during the graduation of 2209 police recruits at the Kenya Police College at Kiganjo in April, President Uhuru Kenyatta urged all those in possession of illegal weapons to surrender them to authorities or face the full force of the law.

Kenyatta said this would be part of decisive actions that would soon be taken to restore order in the security of the country which is being compromised by terror threats from Al-Shabaab terror group.

The President’s announcement of an impending action sought to reinforce the directive by the Internal Security Ministry that all refugees must return to the recognized refugee camps in the country.

The Al-Shabaab terror group has argued that it was attacking Kenya because the Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) deployed to restore order in Somalia.

“We have hosted more than a million refugees for more than 20 years without imposing any restrictions. We cannot continue tolerating those who are abusing our good gestures,” said the President.

The Head of State also reassured Kenyans that the war against terror is not a war between religions or cultures.

“We are not at war with any religion. Our war is against criminals,” said President Kenyatta.

President Kenyatta also called on Kenyan religious leaders to rise up to the occasion and reclaim the values that have held the country together as neighbouring nations were consumed by internal strife.
