The Kenya Defense Forces on patrol shot and killed two al Shabaab terrorists in Nyatha area Lamu County on Thursday around 1800hours. According to KDF spokesman, Davis Obonyo, the soldiers were on routine patrol when they came in contact with the militants who were armed spurring a battle that resulted in the death of the two terrorists.
The incident comes a week barely after four Al-Shabaab terrorists were killed in battle with KDF troops at Mararani area in Lamu East. Four AK-47 rifles, bomb-making materials, six magazines, three grenades, three car batteries, rolls of cables, three mobile phones and assorted foodstuffs were found at the camp.
The KDF has been conducting numerous offensives against al Shabaab camps in the area in the past months and has even prompted for the local administration and other stakeholders calling for the return of the displaced persons. The IDPs in the area have been urged to return home seeing as security has been stabilized and the militants have fled.
