A class seven pupil from Khorof Harar Primary School has been shot dead in a suspected Al-shabaab attack in Wajir County.

Police reports indicate that an unknown number of the militia group attacked the home to a National Police Reservist (NPR) officer at Wajir-East Sub-County on Tuesday morning.

However, when their effort to finding the officer proved futile, they started shooting aimlessly killing the 15-year-old boy.

The officer, Noor Jibril, said he was out on an official duty guarding a nearby hospital when he and his colleagues heard gunshots. When rushing to the scene, he found out that the boy who has been shot is his son.

More police officers have been deployed to the area to track down the attackers.

The killing comes barely a week after five police officers were attacked by a suspected militia group at Banisa along Mandera-Somali border while on a patrol mission.

The ambush took place at around 6a.m. Friday last week.
