Security was tight as about 4,000 Garissa town residents from various faiths led by Governor Nadhif Jama had a prayer service for peace. There have been various attacks on residents in Garissa town.

The special prayer session was held at the Garissa Primary School grounds and was led by the Garissa chief Imam Sheikh Hassan Mohamed. It was organised by the county government in collaboration with the county commissioner's office and was attended by local leaders including Garissa county commissioner Rashid Khator and MP Shukran Gure.

The Holy Quran was cited after which the Garissa Chief Imam prayed for peace, stability, economic prosperity and security. Speaking during the occasion, Governor Nadhif said the special prayer was intended to seek God's intervention in the county's security challenges.

He said the insecurity menace is being propagated by people from neighbouring Somalia and urged residents to identify the perpetrators to the authorities.
