“Give us the body or produce her alive,” father of slain agent tells NISA

Storyline:National News, Security

GOOBJOOG NEWS|LONDON: The father of intelligence agent Ikran Farah has demanded the national intelligence agency NISA either produces her daughter alive or the body noting he was not satisfied by the agency’s explanation.

Dr. Tahlil Farah who is based in London spoke for the first time Saturday as news of her daughter’s death reverberated across the government driving a wedge between Prime Minister Mohamed Roble and outgoing President Mohamed Farmaajo.

The two leaders have taken divergent positions on the matter in what has now escalated into full-blown political wrestling. Roble has demanded the matter be investigated by a military tribunal and prosecuted in the military court. On the other hand, Farmaajo, who has been widely accused of shielding immediate former boss Fahad Yasin, who has been accused of cover-up, wants the matter to be resolved out of court.

“You either produce her alive or give us the body,” said Dr. Tahlil said, adding, “We are not satisfied by the explanation of NISA.” Al-Shabaab has since denied it killed Ikran, a charge levelled against it by NISA.

Dr. Tahlil who has not spoken since the case of Ikran came into the public also lashed out at Farmaajo warning him against ‘undermining’ the quest for justice for her daughter.
