CCTV Dramatic video captures the moment 55 year old suicide bomber of Hargeisa, Somaliland origin, Mr Abdullahi Abdisalan Boodhle blew himself up in Daallo Airlines on 02-02-2016.

The two men seen on the CCTV giving the laptop to Mr Boodhle are of Isaaq tribe from North of Somalia. They are Hassan Aato and Aden Gurey, from Somali police and a intelligent agent from NISA and both are currently in custody.

Mr Abdullahi Boodhle who is also a member of the Somaliland Intelligence Agency may have planned the incident with his fellow agents from Hargeisa. The explosion and the attempt to bring down the plane, which did not happen as planned is said to targeted some of the Somali officials and Swedish Soldier's on board the flight.

 

The suicide bomber used a device that looked like a Laptop to set off the explosive that blew a hole in the jetliner, sucking the man out of the plane and forcing the aircraft to make an emergency landing on Tuesday in Somalia’s capital, Mogadishu, Somali officials said Saturday.

The American aviation expert who looked and examine the damage have concluded that it was meant to bring down the plane. The explosion was directly above the wings where the fuel tanks are, which mean it was well planed and clearly intended to bring down the entire plane midair.

Thankfully it was still climbing but would have shattered if it was on cruising altitude.

"Experts who were investigating the cause of the blast in the plane concluded that a bomb was the cause,” said Ali Jama Jangali, Somalia’s transport minister at a press conference in Mogadishu.

An explosion shook a Daallo airlines five minutes after it took off forcing it to make an emergency landing at Mogadishu's international airport on Tuesday.

The suicide bomber  fell out of the Daallo Airlines plane leaving a hole in the fuselage over one of the wings.

The body of the Suicide bomber had been found. The body, was Abdisalan Abdullahi Boodhle from Isaaq clan, was torn to pieces by the explosion. 

Two Swedish soldiers were among of those on board. They were Swedish officials, who were in Somalia to train Somali National Armies (SNAs) transferred to Mogadishu from their Djibouti camp training.

The Somaliland-owned Daallo Airlines is run by Munir Abasiti and there is a widespread speculation that Absiti, who is also a member of the Somaliland Intelligence Agency may his fellow agents planned  the incident from Hargeisa. The target, which did not happen as planned is said was being targeted by some Somali officials and Swedish Soldier's on board.

Somaliland agents denied the report that it has participated in the incident and said that the National Intelligence and Security Agency of Somalia (NISA) was plotted against the plane since its Hargeisa-owned jet.

In the past few weeks, tensions between the Somali Federal government and Somaliland administration have escalated after Hargeisa administration threatened to deport Somali nationals in Hargeisa in which Somalia's Director of Immigration General Abdullahi Gafow Mohamud ordered to be halted all flights to Hargeisa from 22-02 2016.

Somaliland's interior Minister Ali waran-ade sent a letter to General Mohamud requesting from him to open an office for Somali passports in Hargeisa.

However, Daallo airlines regarded as too old plane that will likely put at risk the lives of its passengers due to possible technical problems. Some passengers urge to be banned it from operating in Somalia, claiming that they did not get any service such as life jackets, portable oxygen, or even warnings.
