Baidoa, QN - The president of Ganaane State of Somalia Nuur Mohamed Moalim aka Bukurow condemned the looting of a food aid intended for the vulnerable members of the internally displaced persons in Baidoa.
Bukurow, speaking from Baidoa told Qalin that he was outraged by the looting of the food aid, which he said was intended as handout to the weak persons of the IDPs.

"The food aid ration was a donation from the Turkish Red Crescent, it was sent for those in dire need, but militia looted it without the intervention of the administration" Bukurow told Qalin.

"I strongly condemn the regional administration's involvement of the looting of the food aid, the forces looted and members of the administration were involved in the looting instead of protecting it" he added.


Bukurow urged the African Union mission forces (AMISOM) contingent in Baidoa to protect the food aid from looting and discipline the forces who were involved in the looting.
