By MN Reporter

Migori town traders have called on police to reign in runaway insecurity after a night giard was attacked on Tuesday and the Maranatha Faith Assemblies headquarters robbed.

Ezekiel Marara, a night guard at Mama Yao supermarket was left for death as three gangsters broke into a nearby motorbike shop and stole three bikes and spare parts worth over Sh560,000.

Marara was hacked on the head, left arm broken and suffered several injuries in the attack.

He was rushed to Ragana Dispensary in the same night robbers also stole public address and studio equipment at the church.

Henry Otieno, the manager at the motorbike shop said CCTV footage showed the robbery attacked the premises from from midnight to 1pm.

“As traders and investors we are worried that cases of insecurity have been on the increase in Migori town, the robbery at our business came only days after a body of a man was picked under a bridge creating fear,” Otieno said.

George Othina, an official at Maranatha Faith Assemblies Church in Migori town said thugs broke in the church and nearby Abison Recording Studio and went away with several electronics and furniture.

Mark Wanjala the Migori county police commander said they have been increasing patrols in towns even past curfew hours.

“We have enhanced patrols, but because of curfew, we have enhanced patrols and call on watchmen to be close to security,” Wanjala said.
