Moalimu was rushed into Recep Tayyip Erdoğan hospital on Sunday after he was injured in an explosion carried out a suicide bomber.

Somali police say Moalimuu was attacked by a man wearing a suicide belt. The attacker detonated the belt when he grabbed the window of Moalimuu’s vehicle shortly after leaving his residence,.

Al-Shabab – an al-Qaeda-linked armed group in Somalia has claimed the responsibility for the explosion.

It is not the first time that Moalimuu, a former journalist, had been targeted in an assassination attempt in Mogadishu.

Al Shabab group has been battling for more than a decade just to overthrow the country’s UN-backed government based in the capital Mogadishu.
