It is not immediately clear the main reason behind the move but sources have confirmed to Radio Dalsan that Goobjoog has allegedly interviewed regional state member of parliament who is in custody himself for unknown reason.
Visual impaired Journalist Abdifatah Hassan Kalgacal from the same station was arrested by the criminal investigation department on March 31st last year but later released after one week.
Somali Independent Media Houses Association (SIMHA) and the National Union for Somali Journalists (NUSOJ) have immediately condemned the arrest and called for immediate unconditional release of the journalist.
