MOGADISHU (Somali Update Online) — Deputy Commander of Operations of the National Intelligence and Security Agency (NISA) Abdisalam Yusuf Guled has resigned on Sunday for unknown reasons, according to an official letter to the Office of the President.
In his letter to President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo, Mr. Guled noted that he left the job and expressed gratitude to the junior officers in NISA and the wider public.
"I state that I have resigned my position as Deputy Commander of Operations at NISA.” He noted.
The letter dated on May 20th, 2017 informed the Prime Minister’s Office, the Minister of Internal Security and NISA Commander.
He was among several commanders appointed for the internal security and intelligence agencies in March and April, following the election of President Farmajo in February.
According to intelligence sources in Mogadishu, the resignation of Mr. Guled came after internal rift within the leading commanders of the security apparatus in the country that led to the confusion of their roles.
As Ramadan month approaches, the new government in Villa Somalia is struggling to tackle attacks and threats posed by the terror group which continues to target both government and civilian in Mogadishu and major towns under the control of the government, as the 22,000 African Union forces (AMISOM) are preparing to handover security task to the Somali security forces at the end of 2018.

The letter dated on May 20th, 2017 informed the Prime Minister’s Office, the Minister of Internal Security and NISA Commander.
