Washington (SD) – The U.S. Department of State, in its efforts to combat terrorism, has announced that it will provide a reward of $5 million for information leading to the identification or location of one of the key leaders of the extremist group Al Shabaab Abukar Cali Adan.
The U.S. Department of State has identified Abukar Cali Adan as the deputy leader of al-Shabaab, and over the years, he has held various prominent positions within the organization, including leadership roles in its military and intelligence wings.
In January 2018, the U.S. Department of State placed Abukar Cali Adan on its list of wanted individuals.
Moreover, the United States has also increased the rewards for information leading to the identification or whereabouts of two other top al-Shabaab leaders, Ahmed Diriye and Mahad Karate. The U.S. government is offering a reward of up to $10 million for each of these individuals.
In 2008, the United States officially designated al-Shabaab as a foreign terrorist organization.
