Curfew in Lamu extended for another month

The dusk to dawn curfew imposed by the police in Lamu last month will continue for at least another thirty days.

Inspector General of police David Kimaiyo says they are still working to flush out criminal elements responsible of recent violence in the county that left many dead and others homeless.

Kimaiyo said the new curfew will run from August 21 to September 21 due to insecurity and ongoing police operations in the area.

Meanwhile Boni Forest, believed to be the main hideout for the criminals, remains out of bounds for the residents, Kimaiyo said.

The military and police have been combing the forest as they hunt for the attackers.

The latest attack took place on Monday, where a police station was attacked at Bodhei on the border with Garrisa County.
