20 November 2018 :
A former member of the Jubbaland armed forces was executed on 19 November 2018 in Kismaayo for the killing of a prominent elder. Mr Abdirizak Omar Abdullahi’s date with the hangman came after he was found guilty of killing prominent peacemaker Hassan Goolo in Kismaayo on 27th October 2018.
Goolo was one of the prominent elders and peacemakers in the Jubbaland state and his killing drew widespread anger. This is not the first time a Jubbaland military court has sentenced to death members of the armed forces for causing murder.
