Two people were shot dead on Wednesday night as they attempted to storm the Bondo Police Station in Siaya County.

Five others were injured and taken to Bondo Sub-County Hospital.

The two were part of an angry mob that wanted to force its way into the station demanding the release of two women accused of kidnapping children.

The mob wanted to lynch the two suspects being held at the station.

Efforts by the police to disperse the angry crowd failed, forcing the officers to lob teargas canisters at them.

Paul Kiarie, the officer in charge of the station, said police used live bullets after the crowd started pelting them with stones.

“We were forced to call for reinforcement from the Recce squad based in Siaya town and the Quick Response Team from Usenge to disperse the mob,” said Mr Kiarie.

The two women told the police that the child they were carrying belonged to their sister-in-law, who had died in hospital after delivery.

They claimed they were taking the one-day-old baby to Nyangoma Children's Home.
