Garowe (HOL) - Thirteen men from the Al-Shabaab and Daesh groups, who had previously been sentenced to death, were executed Wednesday morning by Puntland's military court. The executions occurred in three different cities - Galkayo, Garowe, and Bosaso - around 8:00 a.m.
In Galkayo, five men who belonged to the Al-Shabaab security forces were shot and killed in the Wadajir area of Galmudug. Meanwhile, Shuayb Mohamed (also known as Jaffar) was executed in Garowe. He had been involved in fighting between Puntland and Shabaab forces in Suuj, Garmaal, and Kulub back in 2016. Although he was offered amnesty and rehabilitation, he rejoined Al-Shabaab and committed murders in Mogadishu. He was arrested while travelling to Bosaso and subsequently executed.
In addition to these events, six men who belonged to the Al-Shabaab and Daesh networks were killed in Bosaso town.
