Storyline:National News

The Banadir regional administration conducted a night patrol operation between the Black sea and Bakara market in the capital Mogadishu.

The operation has been destroyed in commercial buildings built around the road, as the Banadir administration has sent a warning signal to other traders who built roads.

Banadir regional governor for security and political affairs, Mohamed Abdullahi Tuulax, who was present at the scene of the operation, said that he would not accept the road to be constructed.

“In the last few days, we have been trying to re-open the streets of the city, but the people believe that the administration will not come back and they start to rebuild again, but whoever rebuild what we have destroyed will face the consequences of the law,” said Tuulax

These buildings were built in the middle of the public roads and no space was given for the public to use.

The Benadir Regional Administration has previously destroyed several buildings that were illegally built in government lands.

There have been numerous allegations of corruption regarding the selling of public land with claims of fake title deeds finding a way into the official system.

Somali President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo early this year halted selling, leasing and allocation of public land.

Land and property ownership in Mogadishu remains an emotive and complex issue dating back to the collapse of the government in 1991 and even before.
