The Minister of Security of the Federal Government of Somalia, Abdullahi Mohamed Nur, has said that an investigation will be launched into allegations that the Somali Police Force used heavy-handed tactics to disperse an anti-Farmajo protest in the capital Mogadishu on Wednesday.

The minister said he had received complaints from demonstrators that the Somali police force used force to break up the protesters and said his office would look into the allegations.

"I have received a complaint that the security forces, especially the police, have harmed officials and civilians attending a peace rally, and an investigation will be launched into the incident. I also call on the public to remain calm and maintain order in the capital. No violence will be tolerated."

Presidential candidate Abdirahman Abdishakur Warsame also accused the deputy police chief and Benadir regional police commander as the principal instigators.

"Demonstrations against Farmajo's coup were blocked by the Benadir regional commander, Farhan Qaroole, and Kaniif. We call on Prime Minister Roble and his security minister to investigate and eradicate the remnants of the dictatorship," said Abdirahman Abdishakur.

On Wednesday, Somalia’s President and Prime Minister met separately with UN and US officials to discuss the latest political crisis.

Hiiraan.
