Mogadishu (SONNA) Militias of the radical Al-Shabab group in Somalia have on Sunday night beheaded a civilian at Eleemow location which is some 22km north of Wajid district in Bakool region, local inhabitants reported.
The name of the beheaded man was identified as Hassan Ali Maad Alin, and was a resident in the location, the deceased was among four men who were riding donkey carts loaded with food stuff to Wajid district
The other three were reportedly to have escaped after spotting the armed Al-Shabab militia, but the deceased couldn’t make it, the deputy district commissioner of Wajid district Adow Abdirahman Jugle, said that the reason as to why this butchered man and the others were being targeted is because of transporting food stuff to Wajid district, since the district is under Al-Shabab siege.
The deputy district commissioner has also added that the three men who escaped from Al-Shabab’s knife have safely reached Wajid district.
Al-Shabab militia have carried out such acts of targeting people transporting food stuff to Wajid town in the past.
