The assistant chief who was abducted by suspected Al Shabaab militants on Friday last week has been killed.
This is after herders along the Chinese cutline between Khorof Harar and Konton found Omar Adan Buul’s head.
Police say that abductors of Buul, who was the assistant chief for Gumarey Sub Location, beheaded him at another location and dumped the head at the road where the herders found it.
“The scene was photographed and the head taken to Khorof Harar police station awaiting to be taken to Wajir county Referral hospital mortuary,” reads the police report.
Police have launched a search to find the rest of the missing body.
