Dr Matiang'i was joined by senior members of Kenya's security apparatus; including the National Police Service boss Inspector General Hillary Mutyambai.

"Top security officials, led by @IG_NPS Hillary Mutyambai, have arrived at the Government Guest House in Garissa for a high-level security meeting that will be chaired by Dr Fred Matiang'i today," the Ministry of Interior wrote on its Twitter handle.

The county of Garissa has suffered a spate of terrorism attacks in the recent past, with Al-Shabaab militants launching an attack on schools in the county killing teachers and pupils a few days ago.

An attack at the Garissa University in 2015, ranks as the worst attack that the county has suffered in years.

147 people were killed in the attack at the institution of higher learning.

Garissa remains vulnerable to terror attacks given its proximity to the war-torn Somalia.

The county leaders led by Governor Ali Bunow Korane held a conference aimed at coming up with ideas of dealing with the scourge of terrorism.
