The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Eastern -

More than 60 youths armed with iron rods, planks of wood and stones yes­ter­day stormed Kilome po­lice sta­tion in Kilungu and de­manded the re­lease of their col­league, who was ar­rested on Wed­nes­day and al­legedly in pos­ses­sion of sev­eral rolls of bhang. Po­lice boss Zacharia Bi­tok said po­lice ar­rested 10 of the youths. He said they will be ar­raigned in court af­ter in­ves­ti­ga­tions. Bi­tok said the group blocked the Nun­guni-Salama road be­fore they stormed the po­lice sta­tion at 8.30am. Dur­ing the 30-minute drama, more than eight sus­pects dis­ap­peared and po­lice are look­ing for them. No­body was in­jured. The po­lice chief cau­tioned the youth against tak­ing the law into their hands, in­stead of fol­low­ing the laid­down pro­ce­dures.
