Somalia’s spy agency has issued a warning about an alleged conspiracy by al-Qaeda-affiliated Al-Shabab Militants to assassinate the president and prime minister.

In a tweet, the National Intelligence and Security Agency (NISA) said it had briefed the country’s authorities about the “al-Shabab mafia plot.”

The agency did not disclose any additional information other than to say that it was investigating everyone involved.

The national spy warning comes as the country faces a political crisis as a result of the long-delayed indirect elections.

Al-Shabab has also increased the frequency of its strikes across Somalia.

In the Somali capital, Mogadishu, the gang recently attacked an airport complex that houses UN headquarters, foreign embassies, and numerous diplomatic missions.
