1 min read

The Somali presidency has recently confirmed that former Somali intelligence director Fahad Yassin, now national security adviser to outgoing President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo, has been detained at Djibouti’s airport.

A statement from the presidency said: “The Federal Government of Somalia regrets the violation of the rights of travellers and international law by the Government of Djibouti in blocking National Security Adviser to the President Mr. Fahad Yasin Haji Dahir and Somali officials travelling with him. ”

The statement added, “We are informing the Government of Djibouti to facilitate their travel, (and) is also fully responsible for any harm to their personal safety,

“The National Security Adviser to the President of the Federal Republic of Somalia, Mr. Fahad Yassin, is attending the National Security Conference to be held tomorrow, September 18, 2021 in Mogadishu.”

This comes as a Turkish Airlines flight to the Somali capital Mogadishu has been canceled, with a stop-over in Djibouti.

At Aden Adde International Airport, a large contingent of security forces was spotted this morning, raising suspicions that the incoming Turkish Airlines plane was carrying former NISA director Fahad Yasin Haji Dahir on board.

Credible reports from Aden Adde International Airport officials say Turkish Airlines feared a disruption to its flight, so cancelled its schedule for arrival and instead landed in Djibouti.
