Nine millitia members were arrested on Wednesday in the Kom area of Merti sub-county, the National Police Service has said. 

A security team based in Isiolo came into contact with the suspected millitia group and overpowered them, according to a police report seen by Citizen.Digital.

Security agents recovered six AK-47 rifles, one FN firearm, 16 magazines, two jungle police uniforms, and several rounds of ammunition during the operation.

“Officers from Merti Sub-County have been working jointly with the GSU and Quick Response Unit (QRU) to beef up security in the area with the closure of Kim Durte mining site recently being part of the journey to restoring peace in the region,” the NPS said on Thursday.
