“Today in the morning, our officers who were on patrol along Maralal and Opiroi road, they intercepted a suspicious driven vehicle, two motor vehicles and upon search, they found 10 foreigners who are suspected to be Ethiopians,” said Samburu county deputy police commander Tom Makori.

According to the deputy police commander, the foreigners were two women and eight men. Nine were Ethiopians and one Eritrean.
