"I express my deepest condolences to the families of the victims and wish a speedy recovery to the injured," he said.

Garissa Women Representative Anab Subow Gure condemned the attack while calling on the government to take security matters more seriously.

She said that all attacks in the county were preceded by intelligence reports and blamed security agencies for failing to act.
