Somali MP says 200 soldiers fired over unknown reason

MOGADISHU (Caasimada Online) — Somali lawmaker has accused country’s National Intelligence and Security Agency (NISA) of sacking at least 200 security soldiers over unknown reason.

Hon. Mo’alim Ali slammed the latest decision to have fired the soldiers in what he said were on their way to eradicate Al Qaeda linked Al Shabaab group in Somalia.

“We learned that 200 security soldiers from NISA were fired without reason. The fired soldiers have now no jobs to fend themselves”, he said.

He says it would be major problem if the fired soldiers share the information with Al Qaeda linked Al Shabaab battling the weak-western backed government of Somalia.

There was no immediate comment from the country’s Intelligence over the latest allegations.
