Reports from the town of Dhusamareb, the capital of Galmudug, indicate that two military planes landed at Dhusamareb airport this morning as the troops are expected to take part in the security and the upcoming conference.
According to reports, the aircraft carrying the troops have departed early Sunday from Aden Adde airport in the capital Mogadishu.
The troops deployed to Dhuusamareeb are expected to take control of the centres recently occupied by the Federal government, such as Shirekole, which is set to accommodate delegates attending the conference.
Ahlu Sunnah has before rejected the plan to deploy troops federal government troops to Dhusamareb, warning of the consequences of the deployment.
Ahlu Sunnah urged the federal government to seek the solutions of the Somali people through a legitimate process based on dialogue, understanding and acceptance, and to avoid using oppression, force and control.
ASWJ, which controls the capital of Galmudug state, Dusamareb, had signed a deal late last month with the federal government after weeks of negotiations spearheaded by the Somali Prime Minister Hassan Ali Kheyre.
