The Somali Government will reward $5,000 to anybody volunteering information on the operations of Al-Shabaab, a minister has announced.
Interior and National Security minister Abdikarim Hussein Guled promised to protect every source of information on the radical Islamist group.
Said Mr Guled: “We want collaboration from the public.”
“We shall keep the identity of the informants strictly secret for security reasons,” he stated.
“Information about bomb making sites or hiding places of those who engage in assassinations are important to us,” he added.
In the past, the Somali Government sought information relating to the hiding places of Al-Shabaab militants or where they kept their weapons.
In June last year, the US offered money for information on seven of the leaders of the militant group that announced its alliance with Al-Qaeda in February 2012.
Some $7 million was earmarked for Sheikh Mukhtar Abdurahman Abu Zubayr, locally known as Ahmed Abdi aw-Mohamud Godane, the Supreme leader of the fanatical movement.
