The Al-Shabaab on 4 September 2022 executed five men within Jilib town in Middle Jubba, Somalia, over claims that they have been sharing intelligence with the US Africa Command, a team that has been working closely with the Somali National Army [SNA] and other allied troops in the country.
It's not the first time, however, that the militants are targeting people believed to be spies of the US and the government of Somalia. Jilib town is the official headquarters of the Al-Qaeda-linked group and has proven difficult got security forces to dethrone them from the base.
Sources say the incident took place on 4 September but even after the execution, the deadly group did not immediately publish evidence on the allegations leveled against the victims.
Usually, the militants do not give the accused opportunity to defend themselves through lawyers.
