Fahad Yasin gives his first interview after 5 years of silence

MOGADISHU, Somalia - Fahad Yasin, former NISA boss gave his first interview in five years, which came after Farmajo lost the May 15 election to Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, his former predecessor. 

Fahad who spoke in an interview with Gaylan Media disclosed a number of key issues, with a focus on NISA, a notorious spy agency he ruled for two years before being booted out by PM last year.

Yasin who is currently in Turkey has publicly insulted the new Director of NISA Mahad Salad, saying he is not the right person to lead the country's U.S.-funded intelligence service.

"President Hassan Shiekh has no knowledge of Mahad Salad; if he had known him well, he would not have nominated him for NISA," he said during the interview set to be released on Thursday. 

In addition, Yasin has warned NISA officers against sharing the national secret with the new NISA director, arguing it's like giving it to an unnamed enemy of the Horn of Africa country.

Meanwhile, Fahad has denied allegations that 5,000 Somali soldiers trained in Eritrea took part in the Abiy's war against TPLF in the Tigray region last year. He was the man who recruited the youths in 2019 and 2020 and sent them secretly to Asmara.

The full interview will be aired on 9 June. Many experts believe the interview is aimed at distracting people from the inauguration ceremony and the timing is a political war against the new leader.

Fahad was accused of being the mastermind of the murder of Ikran Tahlil, a senior NISA female officer who worked as the agency's cybersecurity head last year in Mogadishu.
