The head of the Army, Odowa Yusuf Rage, indicated that before ordering the arrest of the high-ranking officer, he was dismissed from his post, the Somali Guardian website reported.

When referring to the fact, government officials considered that under the orders of the president, Abdullahi Mohamed Abdullahi, known as Farmajo, the day before the military deployed troops to take the prime minister’s office, an attempt that failed thanks to the support of forces loyal to Roble.

Instead of the deposed Adan Dhi’is, Rage appointed Colonel Ahmed Gelle as the new commander of the presidential guard, local press reported.

Previously, Farmajo accused Robles of appropriating public land to build a luxurious residence, amid exchanges of words in recent months between the two leaders of the country, who are vying for power.

For his part, Robles accused Farmajo of deliberately trying to overthrow the government, the Constitution and the laws, with the clear objective of staying at the head of the country’s presidency, without holding elections.

In Somalia, where legislative and presidential elections are planned in coming months through a complex indirect voting system, the constitutional mandate of the current head of state was due to end last February.
