“According to local journalists, Adam Jama Oogle…was detained due to a Facebook post in which he said the people in [Sool] region are supporting the unity of Somalia,” the union added.
“There have been increasing cases of arrests and harassment of journalists in Somaliland, often on the orders of Somaliland officials. We demand the immediate and unconditional release of Adam Jama Oogle,” said Omar Faruk Osman, the union’s secretary general.
“Somaliland must not curtail the freedom of expression of those who live in its regions”.
Somaliland government officials have not publicly commented on the claims.
