Another AlShabaab IED Detonated- Witnesses


KDF security personnel successfully detonated an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) today morning along Kiunga-Sankuri road.

According to eye witnesses, locals in the area noted suspicious activities on the route and reported to the area police post who passed who alerted the KDF.

Using their IED detection equipment’s and skills, a contingent of KDF moved with speed, ventured on the road and managed to detect the IED.

KDF cordoned off the area, and detonated the IED in a loud bang that shook the areas around the scene, leaving a deep hole on the road.

This is coming just few days after another IED was detonated by KDF on the morning of 31st March 2022.

A police report from Kiunga seen by our desk, reported that a platoon of 17 Kenya Rifles while on Escort duties to Kisauni Dam, Kiunga, encountered two pressure plate IED’s and immediately detonated them successfully.

The good relationship between the residents, the desire for peace and security in the affected areas, and being the month of Ramadhan is likely to have contributed to the recent successes by Kenyan security forces.
