Kenyan government has extradited a wanted war lord by Somali government to Mogadishu on Monday.

Reliable sources have confirmed to Radio Dalsan that Abdi Nuure Siyaad AKA “Cabdi Waal”, was arrested in Nairobi and flown to Mogadishu on Monday morning by Kenyan security agencies.

Abdi Waal is wanted by Somali government for his involvement in a confrontation with Somali security forces in Mogadishu on August 2014.

Scores of people died including his loyal militia and some of Somali security personnel when attempts to hand over illegal arms in his position peacefully failed.
