“Many of those injured were rushed to Fulesa Health Centre and other medical facilities in Ethiopia while others were taken to Moyale, Kenya for treatment. Two people died on the spot,” said Mr Galgallo Guyo, an eyewitness.

On the Kenyan, side tension has been building up as a result of a spillover of ethnic clashes in Ethiopia.

Golbo Ward MCA Sheikh Bashir told the Nation that two people were nursing bullet injuries following another clash earlier this week.

“However, right now we have no problem and people are calm with no intentions of raising an alarm,” said Mr Bashir.
