Police are still pursuing the two cars that were on hijacked on Monday by suspected al Shabaab militia while transporting miraa from Maua to Mandera.

 The cars were hijacked at Arabia area along the Mandera-Lafey-Fino road at 4.30 am. Mandera East police boss Jackson Rotich told the Star on phone that a contingent of GSU, regular and AP police officers were still in hot pursuit of the militia.

 “We will not relent until we get back the two Kenyan vehicles. We are making good progress and we expect to have them back any time. We are already negotiating with  authorities in Somalia,” said Rotich.

 The two vehicles were blocked by gunmen near Arabia trading center who took control and drove it towards the border after offloading the goods.

The gunmen did not harm the two drivers who were identified as Issack and Mohammed Abdi. Incidents of carjacking by suspected Somalia militia have been rampant on the Kenya-Somalia border in North Eastern region.
