Confirming the incident, Garissa OCPD Aron Moriase said the officers were escorting presidential election materials from Garissa Town when the vehicle rolled at Abdisamit.

According to the police, the driver lost control of the vehicle before it rolled several times killing one officer on the spot and injuring others.
