The National Union of Somali Journalists (NUSOJ) has been the condemned detention of a television journalist in Somalia's Somaliland security agencies as a ploy to intimidate the local journalists.

On Sunday, 27 May 218, Somaliland police arrested journalist Abdirahman Keyse Tungub, a Bulsho TV reporter in the town of Las Anod. The police informed local journalists that Sool Governor Abdi Khayre Dirir ordered the judgment of the journalist.

The journalist is currently detained at the Police Station in Las Anod. The reason for his judgment was that he had prepared a report on the public views of the Tukaraq war between Somaliland and Puntland, and the report was aired by Bulsho TV. The Governor of Sool Region has accused the journalists of Las Anod for disseminating reports about "contradictory statements" made by Somaliland officials.

"We call for Abdirahman Keyse Tungub to be released immediately and for the journalists to be allowed to report the Sool region including the conflict in Tukaraq," said Omar Faruk Osman, NUSOJ Secretary General. "We condemn the harassment, arbitrary detention and attacks on journalists in Sool who are doing their jobs".

The judgment of Abdirahman Keyse Tungub became the second journalist arrested in a month in Las Anod. Journalist Adam Jama Oogle (Habeb) was arrested on May 14, 2018 and released on May 23rd.

NUSOJ believes the judgment of journalists by Somaliland authorities aims to send a message to local journalists about the conflict between Puntland and Somaliland.
