share on:

About 75 casualtiees have been recorded as terrorist group Al Shabab attacked the Garrisa College in Northeast Kenya.

The gunmen are reportedly holding people hostage, according to the country’s president.

The vice-chairman of the school’s student union, Collins Wetangula, spoke of his ordeal to the Associated Press.

“All I could hear were footsteps and gunshots nobody was screaming because they thought this would lead the gunmen to know where they are,” he said. “The gunmen were saying sisi ni al-Shabab (Swaihi for we are al-Shabab),” Wetangula said.

When the gunmen arrived at his dormitory he could hear them opening doors and asking if the people who had hidden inside whether they were Muslims or Christians.

“If you were a Christian you were shot on the spot,” he said. “With each blast of the gun I thought I was going to die.”

Residents of Garrisa have begun donating blood for the injured victims, while a Sh5 million (N10.7 million) reward has been placed on Shabab official Mohamed Dulyadayn, who is accused of masterminding the attacks.
