A Recce Squad officer has been airlifted to a Nairobi hospital after his colleague shot him in the stomach following an argument in Boni forest.

Police constable Bethwel Tuitoek shot constable Anthony Wanjohi on Wednesday during an operation to flush out al Shabaab militants inside Boni forest.

PC Tuitoek was wrestled down by other officers and disarmed of the G-3 riffle he used to shoot at PC Wanjohi.

He was immediately arrested and taken to Lamu police station and is expected to be arraigned in court.

Sources say Wanjohi is in stable condition.
