Mogadishu (HOL) - The director of Somalia's National Security and Intelligence Agency, Fahad Yasin Haji Dahir, appointed Abbas Yaqub as NISA's new head of Human Relations (HR) following the recent dismissal of Abdullahi Kulane.
The newly-appointed HR head is reportedly a former senior NISA office who worked in finance and technology at the national spy agency.
The appointment of Abbas Yaqub comes barely a week after Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble sacked two high-ranking NISA officers for refusing to allow citizens to board at Mogadishu's international airport.
Abdullahi Kullane, NISA's HR Director, and Abdiwahab Sheikh Ali, NISA's Airport Chief, were fired by the PM after he ordered security and immigration officials to allow citizens to travel freely and without hindrance.
