Two gunmen on Tuesday stormed Abaqkorey High School in Wajir and shot at students sitting the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examination History paper.

The shooting started a few minutes after the exam commenced forcing students to scamper for safety with their test papers. Habaswein police boss Caleb Wesa said the attackers then fled into the bushes.

“It was around 11am when they began shooting,” Mr Wesa said.

The students were later regrouped and sat the examination at the nearby Abaqkorey Primary School.

Mr Wesa said there were no injuries reported and police were pursing the attackers.

“We could not establish the motive behind the attack but we are investigating the matter,” he said.
