Just a day after 11 Kenyan legislators secretly sneaked into Somalia and met President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo, a fight broke out between two military camps, with the outcomes scattering over to Mandera County in Kenya.

A heavy explosion that was followed by gunfire at about 11.00 Am Monday, signalling a foreseen clash between Jubbaland forces and the Federal Government of Somalia (FGS).

Communication was cut off at about 10 AM, explosions and gunshots were allover. FGS troops have been camping at Bulahwa, a town neighbouring Mandera, for the past month, planning a raid to capture a fugitive Jubbaland minister, who has been hiding in the county.

Mr Abdirashid Hassan Abdinur, alias Abdirashid Janan, arrived in Mandera town on January 30 and was booked into a local hotel. He escaped on January 28 from a Mogadishu prison where he had been held since August 31, 2019.
