Somaliland: SL Ministrial Delegation flies to Ethiopia seeking extradition of Warlord Ali Khalif Galyadh





Political Analysis

It has been noted that the man who is behind all these mischief’s to destabilize Somaliland, the current President of Somali Region, Abdi Iley, is in house arrest. The closure of border between Ethiopia and Somaliland, the recent arrival of group of splinter of ONLF in Somaliland to launch guerrilla warfare, and the eviction of Arshin, and Gashamo Ethiopian Somali pastorals are few cases that were masterminded by the President of Somali Region. The advisers of Somali Region are the ex-regime of Siad Barre who made the region of Somali Region, a little Mogadishu. Hoping to see the interference of Federal officials to investigate is lastly paramount. Additionally, Liyu Police, ONLF and the current official of Somali Region led by  Abdi Iley have had terrorized the people , dismantled the Ethiopian Somali Party and ban the political institution that reminded the old days of Somali dictatorship style of governance. Abdi Ieley  was  the one  who has been supporting the Warlord Ali Khalif Galyard  so that Somaliland is forced to unify  with Somalia.
