The statement issued on Saturday gave instructions to all citizens to report any location where al-Shabaab’s top officials operated or the foreigners who allegedly came to the country to support the local jihad (holy war).
The security apparatus indicated the offer of attractive rewards for any substantial information.
Mogadishu Radio, the state run broadcaster, added that the public was also urged to report on information related with al-Shabaab’s training camps, places where explosives are assembled or where vehicles for suicide missions are kept.
The statement, jointly issued by the security agencies of the TFG, requested the citizens to report the movements of Al-Shabaab’s leaders and their foreign supporters that are locally known as Migrant Jihadists.
The agencies also offered to pay for information concerning logistics centres of the Islamist movement as well as any planned attacks to be waged against pro-government positions. The agencies did not specify the reward they would offer in return for valuable information. The statement, however, only indicated that the compensation would be a national level award that would please the informers. NATION
