Seven shot dead by unknown gunmen in raid on school in Kenya

Several dead in mass shooting at a Turkana secondary school

Abraham Lojore, suspect behind the killing of seven students at Lokichogio School has been lynched by an angry mob soon after being arrested.

At least five students and a security guard have been shot and killed in a dawn attack at a secondary school in northern Kenya. "I also pray for a quick recovery of those injured", the Head of State stated through his twitter account.

A key suspect was a senior at the school who was suspended last week after he was found fighting and vowed to take revenge, Kibunja said.

He further expressed deep sorrow at the death young innocent Kenyans at Lokichogio Secondary school in Turkana County.

Turkana governor Josphat Nanok said 18 people suffered bullet wounds in the attack.

Musyambo said the suspect only identified as Ibrahim was a form one student who attacked the school in the company of three others after he was expelled from the institution over indiscipline.

Turkana, an arid region bordering South Sudan, is awash with small arms and violent clashes between competing communities over resources and territory are common.

The administrator said the gunmen shot the students before moving to the girls' dormitory where they injured several others.

The suspension of the lead student was normal disciplinary procedure following a fall between him and a fellow student, but upon being recalled, he gathered a group of friends and together they returned to the school and deliberately targeted victims in what is said to have been a revenge mission.

The students were in school preparing for their national exams when the attack occurred.
