Earlier, Somali police officers and their troops joined the opposition BadbaadoQaran forces, which strongly opposes the recent extension of Farmajo and parliament.
The extension did not materialize, after fighting in Mogadishu between forces loyal to the outgoing federal government leaders and opposition politicians who strongly opposed the extension.
“Capt. Mumin, the heaviest officer in the Haramacad army and his troops, joined the National Salvation Army this afternoon,” said lawmaker Mahad Salad in a statement posted on his Facebook page.
