Somalia names committee to probe missing female spy agent
The Somali government has named a three-member committee to investigate the disappearance of Ikran Tahlil Farah, who was a secretary at one of the offices of Somalia’s intelligence agency.
In a statement, the office of Somalia’s Attorney General has directed the NISA to ‘work with the appointed officials.
“The Office of the Prosecutor of the Armed Forces has accepted the opening of the case file submitted by the relatives of the missing NISA official, Ikraan Tahliil,” the statement reads in part.
The young woman identified as Ikran Farah Tahlil disappeared on June 26 as the Horn of the African Nation marked independence. In CCTV footage Ikran was seen picked in a vehicle from her home in one of the surveilled areas in the capital Mogadishu.
There is fear the young woman was killed the same night she was kidnapped and former officials of the spy agency pointed finger at the institution.
