Mayor Madale detailed the ongoing efforts to apprehend the suspect, stressing the importance of community assistance in capturing the individual responsible for this and a similar crime in the area.

Mahad Omar, the Banadir Regional Police Commissioner, vowed to bring the suspect, Sayid Ali Moalim Daud, to justice for the murder of his pregnant wife, Lul Abdiaziz, after issuing an arrest warrant.
