Ministry of Finance Official Killed In Galkayo
Gunmen in Galkayo killed a Puntland official of the ministry of finance on Saturday night.
Abdirahman Mohamed Abdi who was working with the tax department of the Puntland Ministry of Finance was shot dead after leaving a local mosque after evening prayers.
According to residents, the killing was carried out by men armed with pistols.
Puntland’s security forces have not publicly commented on the latest killing but have launched manhunt on the gunmen who immediately escaped after the incident.
The killing comes at a time when Puntland has heightened its security operations and cracked down on an Al-Shabaab assassin network last year.
