Al Shabaab extremists kill two of their chiefs
Somalia’s al Qaeda-linked al Shabaab extremists have killed two of their own top commanders, one with a $5 million United States bounty on his head, the insurgents said Saturday.
“We have informed their widows of their deaths, as they must now wear the clothes of mourning,” al Shabaab spokesman Abdulaziz Abu Musab told AFP.
The pair killed are two co-founders of the Islamist group, including US-wanted Ibrahim Haji Jama Mead, better known by his nickname Al-Afghani—“the Afghan”, due to his training and fighting with Islamist guerrillas there.
Washington offered a $5 million bounty for Afghani, who opposed the command of top al Shabaab leader Ahmed Abdi Godane.
Godane earlier this month ordered Afghani and other leaders’ arrest.
Al Shabaab gunmen also killed Abul Hamid Hashi Olhayi, named as another senior commander and co-founder of the group.
They attacked the Ahlus Sunnah in Somalia in attempt to destroy them. They desecrated the graves and relics of the Awliya and mocked the Ahlus Sunnah over it often asking why those Awliya aren’t do anything against them. Now look at them facing Allah’s wrath, punishment and shame on earth itself.
Abu Huraira (radiyallahu anhu) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihe wa-sallam) said: “Allah (the Glorified and the Exalted) said: Whoever takes a Wali of Mine as an enemy, I will wage war on him…” – [Sahih al-Bukhari]
