He stated that there were few in number that individuals with vested interest have lured them. Somaliland army is now fully maintaining the law and order of the township added the commander. Mr. Guray has not concealed that ministers from Somaliland and Puntland visit the township. It is the failure of Somaliland previous administration to secure its border with Puntland.

He said that what matters the most is the peace and security to be observed in the township. A couple of days ago, members of Somaliland army stationed in Badhan have announced defecting into Puntland which ministers from its administration have greeted the soldiers and their commanders and integrated them into their forces.
