Marwa threatens to bomb Boni Forest, says ready to die in war on al Shabaab
Coast regional coordinator Nelson Marwa has threatened to bomb Boni forest to flush out al Shabaab terrorists.
Marwa noted the al Qaeda-linked militants have turned the forest into the centre of their operations.
“In the next few days, you will be seeing fireworks from Boni Forest. We need to bomb that forest completely,” Marwa said on a tour of Likoni on Thursday.
“From here I will be landing in Boni. When you hear any noise from those sides, know the attacks against criminals have started.”
Marwa stressed that the attackers, who have ambushed police officers and residents, will be dealt with inside the forest.
“I will enter the forest if others fear going there,” he said and urged Boni residents to work with police.
“I am ready to die while fighting al Shabaab in the forefront as the commander.”
On Tuesday, four police officers and four pupils were killed after a lorry hit an Improvised Explosive Device in Lamu.
The explosion was linked to terrorists in the forest who disappear into it after carrying out attacks.
