Anxiety grips Tigania as raiders attack village killing six

Security officers in Meru are in hot pursuit of raiders believed to have killed six people in Tigania Sub-county Thursday morning.

The six victims were allegedly killed by people believed to have crossed over from the neighboring Isiolo County.

Confirming the incident, Meru County Commissioner Karuku Ngumo attributed the killings to tussle over pasture.

The early morning incident is alleged to have occurred after the said herders moved into the fields in Mweronkoro  village of Meru County with their camels. Villagers claim that that hell broke loose when they attempted to ask the raiders were to leave the area.

The incident has led to tension and panic in the area with some local fleeing their homes.

Meru County Commissioner Karuku Ngumo said such incidents can be avoided if neighboring communities embraced dialogue instead of resorting to conflict whenever they disagree.
