President Farmajo Makes Second Appeal to Al-Shabaab Fighters to Denounce the Terrorist Group

Somali’s President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed Farmajo has made a second appeal to the Al-Shabaab fighters to denounce the terrorist group before it’s too late.

The president appealed to the fighter to take advantage of the amnesty offer extended to them before they are wiped out.

President Farmajo sent a message to Al-Shabaab fighters with information touching on the killings of civilian, destroying private properties and coming to the negotiation table with the government for rehabilitation.

Don’t kill innocent people. Don’t destroy properties. We still stand on our position for reconciliation. I pray to Allah to restore the thoughts of this group and to be independent minded in order to abstain from working with foreigners, the president was quoted in his message.

The president noted that it is not the right for sustaining hostility on the Somali people but what they only need is peace and development.

The Federal government of Somalia has several occasions pleaded with Al-Shabaab fighters surrender and come to the negotiation table.
