Up to 12 people were today arrested at Hareeri location in Mandera County’s lafey constituency by a contingent of combined security officers and later taken to Mandera town.

The officers came with a list of names they said were suspects picking them from the local mosque after Dhuhr prayers on Sunday.

The men, most of whom are local clerics, were taken to Mandera police station where they were now being held.

It was not immediately possible to establish why they were arrested as both the local leaders and security officials did not comment on the issue.

The area chief could not avail himself immediately and said on call he will resume on Monday from the arrest ground. He did not give any information as well on what happened.
