MOGADISHU (Horn Observer) Militias trained by United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Saturday raided the house of the senator Abdi Hassan Awale known as Qeybdiid, who is the chair of the Constitutional Review committee (CRC), amid more than two dozen opposition leaders, lawmakers and regional leaders were summoned to a meeting Dubai, officials said.


In a press conference in Mogadishu senator Abdi Hassan Awale told reporters that, security forces believed to be government forces with a government uniform raided his home.



The senator who was not at his residence during the attack said the security forces broke into the rooms, roughed up everything and collected the guns from his guards without authorization.

"I was later informed by regional intelligence chief that the army that attacked my home were UAE trained.” Senator Qeybdiid said.

Somalia President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo had ordered prompt investigation into the illegal act against the Senator’s house and asked those responsible to be held accountable.

The attack of the senator’s house by UAE affiliated militias comes only a day after UAE summoned a meeting to some two dozen Somali politicians, lawmakers and regional administrations for the preparation of a possible impeachment against the current government, according Somali diplomats via social media posts.

However, Its not yet clear if the attack against the senator was a coincidence or preplaned attack.
