Many Injured As Terror Attack Drill in KeMU Goes Haywire

Chaos and confusion was the name of the game yesterday as a mock terror attack was conducted at KEMU. Students and staff at Kenya Methodist University’s main campus in Meru Town were left nursing injuries after a police security drill on Wednesday, at the institution’s premises. Most of those injured were scampering for safety, fearing that the university had been attacked by terrorists after hearing gunshots. The number of those injured could not be immediately confirmed.

There was panic at the campus and in neighboring estates after shots were fired in the air during the drill at 3.30pm. Security agencies were conducting a mock drill to check the alertness of students and employees at the institution. Many students lost their phones and other items during the drill. Area Police Commander Peter Karanja said most students and staff were unaware of the mock exercise. He said;

“The university administration was aware, but most of the staff members and students were not informed, the aim of the drill was to check the alertness of students and staff members, and their response, especially during this time when the country is experiencing terror threats”

Some students fled from the campus after the incident but the police authorities have assured them of their safety as the institution plans to hold its 15th graduation ceremony this weekend.
