Waagacusub.net - Somali parents in Mugadisho do not send their children to school or any other place outside of their homes for fear of their children to fall into the trap of the National Security Minister, Mr. Khalif Ahmed Ereg.

The Minister arrests and detains children and use the card of Al-Shabaab as a pretext to execute his agenda, of course to ask money for their freedom. 

Mr. Ereg demands from  parents relatively poor to pay at least $500.00 per person for the release of their children.

Wagaacusub Media has learned that the minister arrested, detained and held incommunicado more than 630 children in Godka Jilicow prison Since his appointment last July. 

The minister's power abuse is not limited to sending his men to kidnap children from the streets,but also extorted large sum of money (about $100,000) for each business entrepreneurs in Mogadishu such as  Somali Telecoms, Hawala Money transfer agencies as well as business owners in general.

One of the Minister's new tactics is that he put $100.00 U.S dollar bounty on every alleged Shabaab member,which made easy for soldiers to avail this chance by arresting every single child that encounters them to secure their hundred bucks. 

This is not the first time that he acted inhumanely,but when he was the head of National Security,Mr. Ereg used to take ransom from his prisoners , and he was responsible for the demise of  teenagers that were massacred in Mogadishu after he took out from prison.

However, The minister called on all independent journalists and warned that he would shut down and put place in  jail any media that dares to report his bad actions.    

The National Security minister detained a Journalist  Hassan Ali Gesey of Dalsan Radio ;Mr. Gesey spoke with the VOA Somali Service about  the minister's recent intimidation and his arrest is believed to be connected wit that. This is the latest in a string of violence against Somali journalists.
