Tension is high in the area following the incident that left several farmers wounded and three of them are admitted at the Malindi District Hospital undergoing treatment.
According to eye witnesses, a confrontation ensued after a group of pastoralists drove hundreds of cattle into maize farms.
The pastoralists are from the neighbouring Tana River County and have moved to the area in search of pastures.
One of the farmer who was injured Mr Mwalimu Yaa said the pastoralists drove their livestock into several farms in the area.
Yaa said the farmers intervened and attempted to drive away the cattle.
Dr Buni said five farmers were treated and discharged while three are admitted at the hospital with injuries on the chest, head, hands and legs.
According to the farmers more than 10 acres of farm under maize plantation has so far been destroyed by the livestock.
The farmers said the pastoralists invaded the area early last week where attempted to graze their cattle in the farms but were stopped by locals.
