Two people are feared dead and four missing after two rival pastoralist communities clashed in Isiolo County on Monday night.

Tension was high in Lotik, Loruko, Attan, Alamach, Emegen and Ngaremara areas on Tuesday morning following fierce gunfire between the two groups.

Villagers have fled their homes, fearing for their lives, as learning was paralysed in six schools.

Isiolo North MP Hassan Oda on Tuesday told the Nation that they feared the four missing persons could have drowned at Ewaso Ngiro River.

Villagers said they spotted their missing kin running towards the river after Loruko village was raided by bandits.

Oldonyiro MCA David Lemantile said a woman has been hospitalised at Isiolo Referral Hospital after she was shot at Loruko by the raiders.

Top Security officials were holding a meeting for the better part of the morning.
