MOGADISHU,(HMC)-Al-Shabaab gunmen have killed a prominent elder in Somali capital, Mogadishu, the latest in a string of assassinations against the elders voted for the lawmakers in 2016-2017 Somali elections.

The elder was among the electoral delegates who elected one of Tthe Somali lawmakers identified as Hassan Ja’iir last year in Jowhar town.

According to witnesses, the elder was accosted by two assailants who shot him dead at close range near his house in Barakro before they manage to escape from the crime scene.

Alshabab has claimed for the attack responsibility through a statement posted on pro-Alshabaab website.

The group has killed dozens of elders and electoral delegates who participated in Somalia’s two indirect elections that took place in 2012 and 2016.

Late last year, Al-Shabaab vowed to kill anybody who take part in the parliamentary elections.
