A joint police operation has managed to seize more than 500 camels that were found grazing in farms in the lower parts of Tigania East and Igembe sub-counties.
Igembe North OCPD Peter Kimani said they launched the operation last week after herders declined to attend a meeting security personnel had convened between the two groups to solve the matter amicably.
During the operation, six herders were arrested.
Residents have blamed the insecurity on the high number of camels that have camped in the area as they seek pasture following prolonged dry spell in the neighbouring counties.
