Rampant ISIS Extortion Drives Sudden Shutdowns of Bosaso Businesses in Somalia
Mind-Boggling Chaos Unleashed in Bosaso, Somalia as ISIS Strikes Terror into the Hearts of Business Owners
Prepare to be utterly dumbfounded by the reports pouring out of Bosaso, a city trapped in the clutches of total mayhem within Somalia’s Puntland region. Brace yourselves, as numerous businesses have been forcefully shut down amidst overwhelming threats from the notorious terrorist organization, ISIS. But just when you think things couldn’t get any stranger, political intrigue adds a twisted layer to this already bewildering situation.
Hold onto your seats, because entrepreneurs in Bosaso are stepping forward, one after another, to share their spine-chilling encounters with the menace that is ISIS. They recount sinister phone calls, blasted into their ears by these extremists, demanding exorbitant sums of money under the terrifying threat of complete annihilation for their precious businesses.
If that doesn’t send shivers down your spine, wait till you hear about the hand grenade assault on the “Mareero Spare Parts” store. This mind-boggling act of terror has ignited a wildfire of fear within the hearts of the city’s business community, already brimming with trepidation.
But fear not, for amidst the chaos, there emerges a glimmer of hope as the National Hospital in Bosaso puts up a courageous fight against this monstrous adversary. After a harrowing week of closure, news of the hospital’s reopening spreads like wildfire. Speculation was rife that the facility had succumbed to the extortion demands of ISIS, but reports now indicate that negotiations took place, leading to the hospital ultimately bowing down and handing over the demanded funds to the diabolical terrorist group. Astonishingly, in a statement, the hospital affirms its unwavering commitment to serving the public, undeterred by the ceaseless pressure and threats.
You won’t believe your ears when you hear the tale of the beleaguered hair salon owner, facing off against the ruthless tactics of ISIS. “They had the audacity to contact me recently, demanding an outrageous sum of 300 USD each month,” he exclaims in disbelief. Thankfully, through the power of negotiation, he managed to maneuver the vile demands down to a (relatively) modest figure of 150 USD monthly.
Hold onto your hats, because the bewildering saga doesn’t end there. The political stage in Garowe, the capital city of Puntland, adds another mind-numbing layer to this chaotic tapestry. Brace yourselves for the State House’s deafening silence, as it fails to issue any public response to the Bosaso conundrum. President Dani, currently stationed in Garowe, diverts attention with a captivating display of political shenanigans. Rumors are swirling, alleging that the Parliament Speaker and the Puntland State House are engaged in a clandestine plot to extend the speaker’s term illicitly. As if tensions weren’t high enough, the city finds itself swarmed by a fleet of military vehicles, guarding the hallowed grounds of the Puntland Parliament headquarters.
Just when you thought this tale couldn’t take any more bizarre twists, prepare to be astounded by the horrifying fate that befell the Al Macruuf Supermarket in April. This haven of commerce fell prey to the satanic demands of ISIS, leading to its merciless destruction by fire. This incident serves as a stark, bone-chilling reminder of the grave severity of the situation in Bosaso, effectively emphasizing the urgent need for the Puntland government to muster a swift and comprehensive response.
