The GUC has about 850 students attending, which 147 of those students were slaughtered. The college is next to the Garissa Provincial Government hospital. The nurses, interns, doctors and staff established a 6 basic life support team and were able to save many at the scene.
Police arrived within 15 minutes after the first report of the terrorists attack was sent out to authorities, according to Richard Njoroge.
Four terrorists including one foreigner were killed, three suspects believed to have coordinated the attack including a Garissa College security guard attempting to flee to Somalia were arrested. Another terrorist, Rashid Charles Mberesero from Tanzania was arrested at the college.
The mastermind of the attack was a former principal of a school in Garissa, Mohamed Mohamud, aka, “Dulyadin or Gamahered” who is being sought by Kenyan national security forces.
