Hi, what are you looking for?



According to reliable news sources, former Somalia’s Intelligence Chief, Fahad Yassin Haji Dahir, and Mohamud Shido, a self-styled political broker in Puntland and unofficial boss of an interest group called “Aaran Jaan” (Devil’s kids) had met recently in Ankara, Turkey. It is known the two were sworn enemies in the past. That is why it is a strange bedfellow development worthy of news making.

According to the people familiar with the objectives of Ankara meeting, Fahad and Shido agreed to gang up against Puntland President Said Abdullahi Deni and set their focus on the 2024 Puntland Election and Federal election in 2026. The news also adds that some prominent titled elders of Bari Region were reportedly in Ankara at the time of Fahad-Shido get-together.

In the past, Shido and his Devil’s Kids group was perceived and bragged as owners of President Deni Administration in Puntland. Lately there appears disagreement as a result of political fallout from recent Somalia’s Presidential race.
