The head of Somalia’s Intelligence Agency Fahad Yasin launched a new tactic plan to cover up the disappearance case of Ikran Tahlil, a young female spy officer who went missing in June 26 in Mogadishu.

The office of Attorney General for Somalia’s armed forces Gen Abdullahi Bulle Kamey has appointed three officials from the police, and NISA and his office to probe into the matter, a move that many believe will put an end to the case which became a bigger headache for the Farmajo-led government.

Ikran, 23, was the head of NISA’s cybersecurity department head and has previously served as the secretary of the slain Mogadishu mayor Eng Yarisow who dies August 1 in 2019 of wounds sustained in a bomb blast carried out by a blind female bomber in his office during a meeting in July 2019.

The reason for Ikran’s abduction is yet unknown, but reports that MOL obtained from insiders indicate that she had sensitive information about the killing of the former mayor of Mogadishu, once a London councilor, and the recruitment of thousands of youths sent to Eritrea for trained between 2019-2020 who didn’t come back.

Her family said after the assassination of the mayor of Mogadishu, Ikran went to Britain to study intelligence and returned home this year to continue her work. Fahad and his sacked deputy Kulane Jiis were accused of being responsible for the kidnapping of the girl.
