Two people were on Sunday shot dead by suspected Pokot bandits in Kapedo.
Turkana county police boss Ronald Opili said on the phone that the two were a driver and his conductor.
Two passengers were also injured.
“The suspected armed Pokot bandits ambushed the vehicle travelling to Lokori from Kapedo and killed the driver and a conductor. They were ferrying foodstuff to schools in Turkana East,” Opili said.
He said officers have launched a manhunt to arrest the perpetrators.
In July, Turkana residents blocked trucks from transporting oil from the Ngamia 8 in Lokichar to Mombasa.
They held protests over insecurity and the community’s share of proceeds from the oil.
