Mogadishu (SD) – A military Court has announced the results of a preliminary investigation into the case of Ikraan Tahlil, a former intelligence officer who has been missing since June 26 this year.
Somalia’s NISA command has previously announced that Ikraan Tahliil has been captured by Al-Shabaab and killed in areas under their control. However, the Ikraan Tahlil family denied the allegations, saying NISA’s statement was unconvincing.
The Attorney General of the Court Martial as Gen. Abdullahi Bulle Kamey, said that after an investigation, it was confirmed that NISA was not involved in Ikraan’s absence.
“Following the Prime Minister’s order to investigate the case of Ikraan Tahliil, we interviewed NISA officials, including NISA Interim Commander Yassin Farey and former Commander Fahad Yassin, inspected the NISA headquarters cameras, after the investigation, it became clear to us that NISA was not involved in the absence of Ikran.”
The Attorney General requested that anyone who has evidence or information about the whereabouts of Ikraan Tahlil to share with the Court.
Ikran Tahliil’s mother, Qaali Mohamud Guhaad, described the statement from the prosecutor as a fabrication and another attempt to mislead the Somali public.
