Ex Army officer calls for security forces shake up after attack

attacks in Mogadishu

A former Somali army colonel has called on the federal government to shake up its security forces following series of deadly attacks in Mogadishu by Al Shabaab militants in recent weeks.

Speaking with Radio Shabelle, Col Abdinur Jama Jokar has urged police and National Intelligence (NISA) services to come up with new measures to prevent the frequent bombings by Al Shabaab.

“The army officers who are in charge of the security should be fired from the post since they are incompetent to protect the civilians and stop Al Shabaab from carrying out attacks,” Jama said.

The federal government of Somalia backed by 22,000 African Union soldiers have driven Al Sahabaab out of major ground, including Mogadishu, but still unable of restore peace in the country.

Al Shabaab has carried out in Mogadishu two attacks targeting key areas, including airport and police headquarters in less than a week and killed over 30 people, among them security force members .
