NISA chief appoints new Banadir regional commander

Tuesday May 31, 2022

Mogadishu (HOL) - Somalia's new intelligence chief appointed ‎Muhyadin Warba Shador,  as the agency's Banadir commander, according to a statement from the director of NISA, Mahad Mohamed Salad.

It is Shador's second time being appointed to the position. General Bashir Mohamed Jama (Goobe), the PM-appointed NISA chief, tapped Shador in mid-September at the height of the Ikran Tahlil political fall-out between Somalia's executive leadership, when he was briefly the acting spy chief.

‎This appointment signals that the new guard will be looking to implement significant reforms at the embattled spy agency.

Mahad Salad, a lawmaker in Somalia's Lower House, was appointed as NISA's new director last Thursday by recently elected Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud. Salad is a strong ally of the President who was critical of NISA's former leadership, including former director Fahad Yasin, who headed the agency during the Farmajo administration.
