10 Al Shabaab militants were killed in an early morning offensive launched by the Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) in the area of Taksile, North of Pandanguo.
The officers operating in Lamu County acted on intelligence reports as community policing picks up in the county once Al Shabaab inhabited. Seven AK 47 and an assortment of ammunition were recovered.
The security agency is now urging locals to share information with security officers in the area as the fleeing and wounded terrorists may seek assistance from them. The participation of locals in weeding out lurking terror elements is highly encouraged by the Kenyan government as it will assist in the progressive pacification of Lamu County.
