According to this Garowe Online report, "the late official has made an interview with a local radio station before he was assassinated. In the interview, Fidiyo said his visit to Bosaso city was aimed to take part in the hearing procedures for 70 cases in the military court of Appeals, and for those who were convicted with serious crimes."
