Jim’ale was taken to Erdogan Hospital in Mogadishu where he succumbed to his injuries while undergoing treatment.

The assailants managed to escape from the crime scene.

The security officials arrived at the scene shortly after the murder and could not apprehend the killers.

Al-Shabab which carries out attacks against government officials, elders and other civil servants has reputedly claimed the responsibility for the attack.

The group killed dozens of traditional elders who played a pivotal role in forming Somali parliament and the government.
