The owner of Somalia’s popular satellite TV channel Universal TV has been arrested in Hargeisa.
Ahmed Abubakar was arrested by security forces on Sunday in very unclear circumstances.
It is reported that the reason for his arrest is linked to the airing of a popular satire show which was not liked by the leaders of Somaliland.
Officials are yet to comment on the arrest of the TV owner. Last week , Somaliland’s Information Minister warned politicians and journalists who are against the independence of Somaliland.
A few weeks ago, a Universal TV presenter spent days in jail in Somaliland, he was later deported.
