“I instruct our military to duly submit themselves to their constitutional responsibilities and to safeguard the national security. I instruct the force commanders to pull back forces to their locations and barracks.” Roble said.
He further called on the political opposition leaders to cease all hostilities and actions that can ‘blunder’ Somalia into unintended consequences and to stay at their locations.
