MOGADISHU (Horn Observer) Somalia security forces on Sunday night raided the house of the Abdirahman Abdishakur and arrested him, following firefight that killed at least five of his guards, officials said.

"The security agencies undertaking their consitutional duties and orders raided a house believed to have been organized by crimes”  Abdiaziz Xildhibaan, spokesperson for the Ministry of of Internal security said in a press conference held in Mogadishu, "The citizens who were in the house did not comply by the search warrant from the court.”

Meanwhile the Minister of Internal Security Mohamed Abukar Islow announced that "No political conference can be hold without prior permission from the Ministry.” noting that Abdirahman Abdishakur will be brought before the courts of law.


The arrest follows after the Somalia Attorney General Dr. Ahmed Ali Dahir said that his office is seeking treason charges against two Somali lawmakers and asked the Somalia parliament to remove the immunity from them.

Many analysts contend that the arrest of the politician goes against the provisional federal constitution which guarantees the freedom of association, speech and the freedom of assembly.
