Security agencies seize vehicle with explosives in Baidoa

The security agencies in the southwest administrative capital of Baidoa have nabbed vehicle transporting explosives on Tuesday.

Police said they recovered three hand grenades hidden inside the sack with grains after a search.

The driver of the vehicle was arrested in the event but maintained he has nothing to do with the weapons.

Southwest security minister has thanked the regional security departments for the job well done.

Hassan Hussein Elay called upon members of the public to closely cooperate with security agencies to improve security.

“I urge members of the public to cooperate with security agencies,” he said.

“We will reward the officers that nabbed the vehicle with explosives,” he added.

Baidoa, the administrative capital of the southwest state of Somalia is gearing up to host the election of regional president next week.

More than hundred Somali federal police officers were deployed weeks ago to beef up the security of the city.

Politicians from the region have dismissed the move saying it is an attempt by the government to interfere in the election.
