An IGAD General met with Col. Arre and his group, according to Eng. Faisal Ali, IGAD asked him the reasons they’re fighting, Col. Arre and his group claimed that the Somaliland government undermined them, IGAD then told them that conflict in Somaliland was not acceptable since Somalilanders have other ways in mitigating their issues, such as through the opposition parties and the free media.
Eng. Faisal Ali Warabe did not spill the beans on how Col. Arre responded to the IGAD General’s dismissal of their grievances.
