Thursday May 23, 2024

Mogadishu (HOL) - Gunmen armed with pistols killed Southwest regional state member of parliament Ibrahim Abdi Abdirahman in Mogadishu on Wednesday night.

Southwest State leader Abdiaziz Laftagareen condemned the killing of the lawmaker, who had been in Mogadishu for work in the past few days.

President Laftagareen blamed the al-Shabab group for the killing of MP Ibrahim Abdi Abdirahman. He described the deceased MP as one of the people who played a major role in peace, government building, and reconciliation efforts in the Southwest.

"I am asking God to make his abode in Jannatul Firdowsa, and give patience and faith to his family and the general Somali people," said the president of the Southwest Administration, Abdiaziz Laftagareen.

No group has claimed responsibility for the killing, but al-Shabab usually targets Somali politicians.
