Somalia’s Intelligence to make Agency’s name changes

MOGADISHU (Caasimada Online) – Somalia’s National Intelligence and Security Agency (NISA) has reportedly started a new plan to make its Intelligence Agency’s name changes.

Reliable sources told Caasimada Online that country’s security leadership was planning to change the name of National Intelligence and Security Agency (NISA) into its previous name which was National Security Service (NSS).

The Agency was used to be called as National Security Service (NSS) between 1970 and 1990 by the military government, but NISA’s name was given when the agency was re-established in January 2013, according to sources, who asked to be anonymous, because of reprisal attack.

The on-going plan is reportedly organized by Deputy Chief of Somalia’s National Intelligence and Security Agency (NISA), Fahad Yasin and Zakariye Osma’il Hersi, who defected from Al Shabaab and other senior officials, whose name has not been released.

Fahad Yasin is set to be appointed as country’s Intelligence chief after the new plan is done, the reliable sources said

The new plane of Agency’s name changes emerged as the agency has recently descended into disruption and conflict over security reshuffle in a degree announced by country’s President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed last month.

This comes after former deputy of NISA chief, Abdullah Abdullah was stripped his membership of Somalia’s National Intelligence Agency.
