North Eastern regional coordinator Mohamud Saleh said the attackers escaped soon after the attack. Saleh said a response team was sent to the place to access the damages caused. “The militia stole one car after causing damage at the station but response teams are pursuing them. The place is remote and far,” he said. Locals said the attackers had been roaming the place since Wednesday night and that they alerted authorities of their presence. A dusk to dawn curfew has been imposed in the area and it is not clear how the group managed to strike.
