The secretary of Wadajir District has been shot dead in Mogadishu on Saturday in a drive-by shooting attack by unidentified gunmen.
The gunmen traveling in a car have sprayed bullets on a vehicle carrying Abdirahman Ahmed Alasow near Korontada Junction in Wadajir district.
No group has yet claimed responsibility of the attack amid security deterioration in the capital in the past weeks.
The murder of the official is the latest in a series of target killing in Mogadishu for the last 24 hours.
Somali government is yet to comment on the latest drive-by shooting in the capital.
