MOGADISHU (SD) – The father of Ikran Tahlil Farah, a female spy agent who went missing in June, has accused the outgoing president Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo of undermining the investigation of the case of his daughter barely hours after the president and the prime minister disagreed over the matter following hour long meeting in Mogadishu.
Ms. Farah was reportedly abducted from home near the headquarters of Somalia’s intelligence and Security Agency (NISA).
According to multiple sources, Farah was last seen as she boarded an undemented car from her home.
Sources noted the young spy agent had received a call before she left and boarded a car outside her home at about 8 pm local time.
Speaking to Universal TV, the father, Dr. Tahlil Farah has urged Farmaajo not to stand in the way of investigations into the death of my daughter, the father of deceased intelligence agent Ikran Farah
Dr. Tahlil Farah said his family’s attempts to get justice for her daughter have not yielded any response especially from the government.
He said his family had spoken to immediate former NISA boss Fahad Yasin, CID officers and First Lady Zahra Hassan.
Dr. Farah said Fahad had requested for two days to gather information about the disappearance of Ikran but ‘we were shocked when he announced on TV that she had been killed.’
Dr. Farah further said he was not satisfied with NISA’s explanation on the fate of his daughter adding, ‘you either produce my daughter alive or bring the body.’
The remarks of Ikraan’s come after the talks between Somali president Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo and prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble collapsed after the leaders disagreed over contentious issues.
On Saturday, President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo, prime minister Mohamed Hussein, Ahmed Abdi Qoorqoor and Abdiaziz Hassan Laft-Garan have held closed-door meeting which lasted for several hours in Mogadishu.
According to reliable sources, the president and prime minister disagreed over the fate of the case of Ikran Tahlil Farah, who went missing last June.
During the meeting, President Farmaajo reportedly demanded that the case of Ikran shouldn’t be move court martial but be investigated deeply, a call rejected by prime Minister Roble.
The leaders also discussed the suspension of the boss and the subsequent sacking of the country’s internal security minister.
