People who closely analyze the security issues think that there are issues that need to be brought out which are believed to have led to the failure of security in Mogadishu, and the explosions that failed to prevent them.

Analysts believe that widespread lack of cooperation among the security agencies is the main reason for the neglect of the people, but there is another issue that many people are not aware of.

“During the time of Farmajo and Fahad, there was an official who had a lot of power in obtaining information about terrorists and thwarting them, who has many names and is known by many people as Abdullahi Dheere,” said Col Ali, one of the former intelligence officers of Somalia.

It has also been pointed out that Colonel Abduahi Dheere, who is also known by names such as Abdalla Dahir, Ugas Abdalla, Mohamud Dheere, Fu’ad Ahmed, Danjire and others, during the previous government was the reason why Farmajo’s security issues were and Fahad as he used to get Al-Shabaab’s secrets and succeeded in thwarting many explosive attacks at that time, but now it is useless.

It is not clear if Farmajo and Fahad are better at keeping secrets than Hassan and Mahad, but it is said that Abdullahi Dheere is concerned about how security information can be shared with NISA chief Mahad Salad, even though he admires the management process of Hassan Sheikh. and Hamse according to news sources.

The officer in question (Abdullahi Dhere) is the cousin of Hamse Abdi Bare, who is the nephew of the former leader of Al-Shabaab, Ahmed Godane.

The second biggest attack carried out by Al-Shabaab in Somalia after October 14, 2017 took place on October 29, 2022, and more than 150 people died and more than 300 were injured, according to M/W Hassan Sheikh who went to the scene. where the explosions took place.

In the past three months, the country has entered a phase of war, but it is clear that there is still a lot of security in place, as shown by the attack on Hotel Hayat that took 24 hours, and also killed almost a hundred people.

All over the country, the attacks carried out by Al-Shabaab in the central and southern regions have killed more than six hundred people in the last five months, in partcular Hiran, Lower Juba, Middle Shabelle and Banadir alone.

People who comment on security issues think that Al-Shabaab can only be defeated in terms of intelligence because they work in a hidden way, the only thing that can be dealt with is someone who brings out the secret plot.

Changes in intelligence and policing are obviously necessary and there is a need for officers to be able to access terrorist information in order to prevent their attacks.
