What you need to know:

  • The Kenyan outfit had aliases including Jeysh Ayman Majmo Ayman and Jeshi la Ayman.

  • Initially, his fighters were mostly drawn from coastal communities and a few from North Easten region.

  • But one of the camps at Pandanguo was raided by terrorists barely two weeks ago, overrun, and three officers killed.

A new terror outfit may be behind the latest series of attacks in Lamu County and security agencies there are struggling to understand it.
