Following the April 2 deadly terror attack on Garissa University College in which 147 people lost their lives, Interior Cabinet Secretary Major Gen. (Rtd) Joseph Nkaissery has today announced the interdiction of nine security and administrative officers in Garissa.

The officers were interdicted after investigations into incident revealed negligence of duty on their side.

As result, Northeastern Regional Coordinator Mr. Ernest Munyi, Garissa County Commissioner Njenga Miiri and seven senior police officers were interdicted.

“After perusing the reports of the two teams, I am convinced of the need for thorough investigations into the terrorist attack on the Garissa University College to establish possible criminal culpability of individual officers or relevant security committees” said Nkaissery.

The CS interdicted the two senior administrative officers and directed the Inspector General of Police to do deal in the same manner with Garissa AP Commander Christopher Muthee, Garissa CID boss Musa Yego, Garissa County Commander Charles Wambugu and Garissa OCPD Benjamin Ongombe.

The officers faced different counts of misconduct.

Other who faced the axe were Sub-County Commander John Cheruiyot Sawe, Garissa Police Station deputy OCS Inspector Charles Ayoro and head of the Anti-Terrorism Police Unit, Chief Inspector Nicholas Mutuku Kimanzi,
