Puntland police commission has given out details of Saturday’s search operations in the Gulf of Aden port city of Bossaso which netted a dozen suspects.
Puntland Police Commander, Mohamed Saeed Jaqanaf who gave exclusive interview to Goobjoog News said that the security sweeps conducted in some of the towns of semi-autonomous regional state of Puntland are intended to beef up the security.
“The police apprehended several suspects and investigations are underway therefore within the forthcoming hours the police will release those proved not guilty” he said.
Speaking about complaints lodged by Some of Bossaso residents who have expressed concern over how the police treat with public during operations, he said that those complaining about operations might be sympathisers but the work of the police is to maintain law and order,
“I think those are sympathisers, to tighten the security is good for them, the soldiers do not disturb any citizen, they don’t take properties and so far we did not receive any complain from the public towards the police” he noted.
The commander finally called the residents of Bossaso town to work with the police in peace maintenance.
