Sunday April 28, 2024

Jowhar (HOL) - The Director of the Somali National Security and Intelligence Agency (NISA), Abdullahi Mohamed Ali Sanbaloolshe, has called upon traditional elders in the Middle Shabelle region to collaborate in ending deadly inter-clan conflicts along the Hiiraan-Middle Shabelle region border.

The land dispute between the Hawadle and Abgal communities has escalated into violent clashes in the Moqokori and Aden Yabal districts, underscoring the gravity of the situation.

A mediation meeting between the two clans was convened in the Middle Shabelle region on Saturday. Several government officials, including the Chairman of the Military Court, Ali Noor Shute, President of Hiiraan State, Ali Jayte Osman, and Sanbaloolshe, attended.

"I regret the situation here; no Somali person or official is pleased with what had occurred. It is unfortunate. I believe we have a common enemy, but we should not be enemies amongst ourselves," stated Commander Sanbaloolshe during the event.

The Director of NISA emphasized that the federal government will no longer tolerate illegal checkpoints in Hirshabelle administrative areas, highlighting that they are prevalent in most areas.
