Colonel Abdi Ali Seed, a Police officer who the Somali Police evicted him from his home in Sheelare Police complex in Mogadishu’s Xamar Jajab district have hung himself today.
Mr Abdi Ali Seed was deposed from his post as the commander of the Sheelare Police complex earlier, his wife has said. And he was ordered to arrange his accommodation outside the complex.
Yesterday, an official from the Police administration requested him to come to the Police Headquarters.
According to the wife of late Abdi Ali Seed, the colonel was not able to meet the Somali Police Commander who he hoped to help him on solving the issue when he visited the Police Headquarter.
” When he went to the Police Headquarters he was told that the Police commander was busy and that a committee will examine his complaint and feedback to him tomorrow,” she said.
” But in the morning I saw people running toward a tree within the complex. Before reaching the place, I was told my husband has hanged himself.”
” I believe the government is responsible for his death. They forced him to kill himself.”
Police Headquarters were not able to comment on the cause of his death.
