Puntland: Four Police Officers Arrested Over The Murder Of Goldogob Police Commander

Puntland State police of Mudug province today arrested 4 of their men in connection with the death of Galdogob police station commander who was killed last night in Bursalah location allegedly by his fellow police mates.

A delegation led by the commissioner of Mudug region commissioner Hassan Mohamed Khalif last night arrived in Bur Salah location where the ill-fated incident took place. Already the commissioner of Galdgob Hassan Mohamed Farah Yahle reached the area in prior.

Mudug comissioner Khalif confirmed the arrest of the murder suspects.

“When we arrived in BurSalah location, we met with the commissioner of Goldogob. Together we visited the body of the deceased officer for confirmation. Immediately we initiated an investigation. The 4 police officers were informed of a terrorist car approaching the location and confronted it with gunfire, killing one of its occupants. Fortunately the 4 police suspects have been arrested by their local commanding officer. Investigation is ongoing” said Commissioner Khalif.

Commissioner Yahle said the fallen police boss has not been interred.

“Last night 3 km away from Bur Salah location, commander of Goldogob police station Abdihamid Warsame Ishak was killed and his body still not buried” noted Goldogob Commissioner Yahle.

3 other police officers who got injured in the night attack were taken to Goldogob for medical treatment.

The senior officials converged in the remote location to unearth the cause of the murder.
