Residents of Igembe North expressed a sigh of relief after a security meeting was held on Monday at Bulu, Mutuati Division, Igembe Central, to discuss how to curb insecurity cases experienced for a long time in the area.

Speaking to members of the public at Bulu, Mutuati, Igembe North, Inspector General of Police, Japhet Koome, assured members of the public that more security officers will be deployed in the region to tame the insecurity, which has seen several bandit attacks in the recent past leading to loss of lives and destruction of property.

He noted that security agents are working hard to fight the bandits at the border of Isiolo and Meru, adding that so far they have managed to recover 81 of the stolen cattle.

This follows last week’s banditry attack, where five people lost their lives and others were injured. “We will not rest until peace and tranquility are restored in this region,” said Koome.

The IG was flanked by the area MP Julius Taitumu and his counterpart, Dan Kiili of Igembe Central, among others.
They appealed to members of the public to maintain peace and coexist harmoniously.
The MPs urged the members of the public to embark on their economic activities .
