Mogadishu – Gunmen in Dharkeenley district shot and killed a clan elder on Tuesday night.
The killing marked the second time a clan elder from Hiiraan was killed by gunmen.
According to residents, Abdullahi Nur Garad Seefle was killed when no less than two younger males armed with pistols shot him a number of occasions in his torso earlier than fleeing.
Elmi, a clan elder from Hiiraan, instructed the media that al Shabaab militants have been liable for the killing.
The killing of Nabadon Abdullahi Nur Garad Seefle, certainly one of Hawadle’s clan peacekeepers, is the work of Al-Shabaab, who’ve already declared that they’ll kill students and elders of clans who rise in opposition to them.
Elmi stated the killing illustrates that al Shabaab fears the clans are organizing in opposition to them.
In an identical assault final Wednesday, suspected Al Shabaab assassins shot and killed Hussein Hayow, a clan mediator or peacemaker from the Hiiraan area.
The Somali National Army has joined forces with clan militias often known as Ma’awisley in central Somalia, which have been mobilizing in opposition to al Shabaab.
The navy claims over 100 al-Shabab militants have been killed throughout weekend offensives to retake territory within the Hiiraan area.
