The millitia are said to have beheaded the assistant chief who-reports indicate that he was an alleged Al-shaabab sympathizer.
The head of Omar Adan Buul was dumped on the road and was found by herders along the Chinese cutline between Khorof Harar and Konton.
Heartfelt condolences to the family of Omar Adan Buul, a respected assistant chief in Wajir County's Gumarey location.
Al-Shabaab abducted him, tortured him, cut off his head, displayed it on the edge of village.
This medieval horror designed to instil fear, extract compliance.
