Former Somali insurgent leader Mukhtar Robow Abu Mansur has defected to the government, a military official said on Sunday, severing ties with Islamist group al Shabab two months after the US quietly removed a $5 million reward for his capture.
Since then, there have been skirmishes involving Abu Mansoor loyalists and pro-Somali government forces on one hand and the attacking Al Shabaab fighters on the other.
Ahmed Mohamed, a senior government security official, earlier said Robow was taken from the Bakool jungle area, where he and hundreds of his fighters had been battling al-Shabab since early last week. He said it had sent soldiers to try to defend him. "He will be flown to Mogadishu soon", Colonel Nur Mohamed, a Somali military officer, told Reuters by phone from the southwestern town of Hudur.
