Explosion targets Mogadishu court official a day after calling out for war on al-Shabab on Facebook

By Yunis Dekow

An Explosive device attached to the car of one of Mogadishu’s leading prosecutors has exploded near the Presidential palace. 

Musharaf Mohamed Mo’allim who worked with the Justice department of the Banadir regional administration sustained injuries and has been admitted to Hospital. 

The blast prompted the local authorities to cordon off the area, according to local security service representatives who spoke to Dalsan TV.

Somali security Forces have not apprehended anyone following the explosion on Tuesday. 

Musharaf Mohamed Mo’allim on Monday wrote a brief Facebook post denouncing the militants who are now heavily fighting the Somali Government.

Mr. Musharaf joined other Somali leaders and civil servants to support security forces in the ongoing war to degrade the militants. 

In his Post, he commended efforts by the Somali armed forces in pursuing the Al-Qaeda allied Group. 

Somali Police have not released a statement following the explosion that was heard in adjacent areas including the famous Makkah Al Mukarramah Street. 

Since their removal from the capital Mogadishu in 2011 by a combined force of Ugandan Troops and the Somali Army, al-Shabaab has conducted numerous attacks including an attempt to enter the Presidential Palace. 

The attack targeting the Somali government official is a direct message that the militants will strike those who are opposed to them and are advocating for more government support against the group. 

The Somali National Army has launched Military operations in parts of central and Southern Somalia, the most successful offensive operation in five years according to the United States. 

The operations are largely going on in Galmudug and South West States. 

Jubaland has vowed action as well in its areas, in what is seen as the strongest military offensive carried by a combined force of the Somali Security Forces.
