by Himan and Heeb Security forces and was
handed over the government security forces.

guarding him and was escorted to the VIP of

Aweys accepted to surrender to the Somalia
federal government after 2 days of talks
between him and government delegation mostly
from his clan that reached Adado the second
day of his arrest.
The NISA forces refused the media to take
photos of Aweys who covered his head with his
white headscart (imama) and faced down to
“He looks very old, very exhausted and sick”
said Qalin News Reporter who saw Aweys as
he got off the plane.
“The NISA branch of Alpha Group surrounded
him, he was not handcurfed but he was under

Aweys’ arrest is a serious blow to Alshabab,
which is sharpening its knives for its members
as internal conflict torn the group apart.

respond the calls related to the fate of Aweys,
who fled from Barawe 10 days as as a group of
