MOGADISHU (SD) – Jubbaland state in southern Somalia has commended the role played by Prime Minister, Mohamed Hussein Roble in handling the case of Ikran Tahlil Farah who reportedly killed last week after she went missing more than two months ago.
In a statement, Jubbaland leader Ahmed Mohamed Madobe said PM Roble has the authority to suspend Fahad Yasin since he has stewardship over security and the electoral process.
Madobe condemned President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo’s move reinstate Fahad, saying the move could promote oppression and injustice which can lead to disruption of the upcoming elections.
Jubaland also accuses the President of intentionally undermining the PM’s effort to bring justice to Ikran’s family.

Ms. Farah abducted June 26 near her home in Mogadishu’s Abdulaziz district, which is close to the agency’s headquarters.
Her disappearance raised a storm with her family constantly asking the government to explain her disappearance or produce her. Politicians also picked up the issue and made it a campaign subject.
Late last week, NISA announced that Ikran was killed by al-Shabaab militants, a move dismissed by the group militant.
