KDF Officer Shoots Dead Naked Man Storming Into Army Barracks

  • A Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) officer at Mariakani Barracks, in Kilifi County, shot a naked man who was seen approaching the barracks’ perimeter. 

    According to a police report, the KDF officer was manning a sentry barrier when he saw the man approaching.

    Out of an abundance of caution, he signalled the man to stop in a bid to prevent a breach of security protocol in the usually highly-guarded area. 

    However, the defiant man continued walking towards the sentry barrier hence necessitating action from the officer.
