Law enforcement authorities have named the ring leader as Maulid Bilal.

"Maulid Bilal is the ringleader of the Al-Shabaab criminals causing havoc in Fafi and Hulugho in Garissa," the statement read.

He is said to be a Kenyan Ogaden from Abdalla Abdi Karim sub-clan in Hulugho sub-county, Garissa County.

Suspected Al-Shabaab militants on Tuesday burst into the Saretho Primary School and attacked the innocent pupils, killing 4 and injuring 2.

The militants are also said to have been targeting a communication post as part of the Somalia-based group policy of disrupting communication in North Eastern Kenya.

The name of Maulid was shared with news outlets in the country.

Kenya is locked in an ongoing war against the group which has been responsible for scores of attacks that have led to many deaths.

In 2015, the terror group descended on the Garissa University College before dawn, killing at least 147 people.

In spite of suffering tremendous military reversals, the group continues to pose a serious threat to security in the region.

A few days ago, Al-Shabaab militants attacked a military base shared by Kenya and the United States of America, killing 3 Americans according to media reports.

President Uhuru Kenyatta has long said that there will be no let-up in the pressure that Kenya is exerting militarily on the group whose footprint in Somalia is said to have been significantly reduced.
