Somalia’s National Intelligence and Security Agency (NISA) has confirmed that Ikran Tahliil Farah, a member of the agency, was captured by Al-Shabab and killed.

Ikran Tahliil Farah, a member of the National Intelligence and Security Agency had not been heard from since June 26, 2021, when she was driven from her home in Mogadishu at night.

The statement from the state-run media said, “After a period of follow-up, the Somali spy agency received information that it had surrendered to Al-Shabab terrorists and killed her.”

The statement added, “The National Intelligence and Security Agency has handed over the details of the Ikran case to the relevant authorities. The National Intelligence Agency also shared this information with her family.”

NISA said it was pursuing the perpetrators and would bring them to justice. No one can verify the information from NISA. Al-Shabab has not yet commented on the allegations.

Meanwhile, NISA did not say how Ikran was captured by Al-Shabab, and how they managed to drive away not far from the agency’s headquarters.

However, the revelation is likely to raise more questions and put NISA in the spotlight over the manner it handled the matter. Since Ikran Tahlil went missing on June 26th, 2021, NISA has kept mum over the issue, leaving the family and the nation in the dark.

Her mother Qali Mohamud Guhad pleaded with Somali Prime Minister Mohamed Roble on August 30th, 2021 to come forth on the whereabouts of her daughter.

Sources told Somali Times the vehicle which Ikran Tahlil Farah boarded on the evening of June 26th, 2021 was a vehicle registered to the Somali spy agency.

Ikran Tahlil Farah was educated in the United Kingdom.
