The government has now denied reports of a dawn attack at the Mokowe GSU camp in Lamu County by suspected Al Shabaab militants.

Regional Commissioner in charge of Boni Forest operation, James ole Serian, says there was no exchange of fire between Kenyan security officers and suspected Al Shabaab militants.

Speaking after chairing Lamu County Security Committee, Ole Serian stated that gun shots heard in the area last night were from a patrol team at the Mokowe GSU camp which fired shots due suspicious movement near the camp as a precautionary measure.

Ole Serian says no one was injured in the incident, which comes a day after President Uhuru Kenyatta directed security officers to deal firmly with Al Shabaab militants in Lamu County following recent terror attacks.
