GOOBJOOG NEWS|MOGADISHU: The controversial Banaadir Regional boss Sadak Omar Mohamed aka Sadaq John has been fired few minutes after he ‘ordered’ parliament to cease proceedings because ‘its term had expired’.
A statement appearing on the government controlled news agency SONNA briefly indicated the Sadaq John has been relieved of his duties with immediate effect.
“The Somali Police Force Commander, Gen. Abdi Hassan Mohamed Hijar, has fired the Benadir Regional Police Commander, Sadiq Omar Hassan (Sadaq John),” the statement read.
Colonel Farhan Mohamed Aden (Farhan Qaroole) has been promoted to the rank of Colonel of Banadir Regional Police.”
Sadak said in a media conference some minutes after 11 am local time that he will not allow parliament to conduct its business again arguing their term had expired and that there was no agreement on way forward.
He added that he will now allow instability in the city. Sadak John, a hitherto trusted ally of outgoing president Mohamed Farmaajo was recently handed responsibility for the Aden Adde Airport in a controversial move harshly condemned by the opposition.
