5 people still missing after being hijacked in Lamu

The whereabouts of five people and two vehicles hijacked by suspected Al-Shabaab militiamen in Lamu on Friday remain unknown.

Witness reports however say the vehicles have been spotted in Jilb, a stronghold of the Al shabaab militant group.

The armed attackers intercepted the two Toyota Land Cruiser pick-ups, which were transporting miraa between Milimani and Basuba in Lamu East at around 8.30am Friday.

They took off with the five occupants of both vehicles, which were transporting miraa to Somalia.

This is the second attack to happen in the same area.

In August, a driver was beheaded and two vehicles taken away. To date no recovery has been made.
