Reports from Lower Juba region indicate that a strong rift has emerged between senior leaders of Al-Shabaab rebel group in the region over alleged dismissal of the group’s leader in Afmadow town.
Reliable sources say that the rift has emerged when the rebel group allegedly dismissed Mohamed Abu Sa’ad who has been the Afmadow district commissioner and replaced him with Ahmed Adde.

Sa’ad who is now in the port city of Kismayo rubbished his dismissal insisting that he still remains the legitimate Afmadow district commissioner, prompting internal wrangles within the ranks of the militant group.

Meanwhile, Al-Shabaab militants have arrested 15 people in Kismayo in the last 24 hour for allegedly being involved in criminal activities.

The accused were reportedly rounded up from Farjano and Gul-wade neighbourhoods.
