Fahad Yasin flees the country before Farmajo exits the power 

MOGADISHU, Somalia - Fahad Yasin, the former spy chief and presidential advisor who has been accused of playing a big role in the killing of Ikran Tahlil, fled to Turkey on Sunday, May 22, boarding a Turkish Airlines flight at Mogadishu airport.

According to Keydmedia Online sources, Yasin is accompanied by his friend Abdirahman Dheere, an immediate former Somali lawmaker who worked closely with Farmajo during his five years in power.

Fahad's escape comes as new President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud will on Monday officially take over from Farmajo, the man whom he brought to power in 2017 after funding his February 8 election.

This man, who used to serve Qatar's interests in Somalia, is part of a team of five NISA officials blamed for the abduction and the subsequent killing of Ikran Tahlil, who was secretly assassinated last year.

Tahlil, 25, was NISA’s cybersecurity department head. She was educated in the UK and worked as the assistant of the slain Mogadishu mayor Eng Yarisow before joining the intelligence agency in 2017.

The girl had sensitive information about the assassination of the mayor and the thousands of teenagers who were secretly taken by Fahad in 2019 and 2020 to Eritrea for training and never come back home so far.

A UN report revealed that the youths recruited by Fahad and lured with fake work in Qatar were killed in the Tigray conflict last year while fighting along with Ethiopian and Eritrea forces against the TPLF rebels.

Fahad and his team in NISA – the National Intelligence and Security Agency fear they could be arrested and prosecuted for their serious crimes in Somalia by the next government led by Hassan Sheikh Mohamud who defeated Farmajo on May 15 presidential election in Mogadishu by 240/110 votes.
