Somalia: Nugaal governor reach Eyl, meets residents

A delegation led by the governor of Somalia’s Nugal region under the Puntland State has reached the coastal town of Eyl, where they held talks with the town’s elite and residents.
 
Accompanied by security forces and journalists, the delegation departed from Garowe, the administrative capital of Puntland on the night of April 1.   
Reporters from Radio Garowe are among the journalists, who will cover the trip of the governor. Nugal administration is said to be focused on how best to maintain the security in the region with more focus on Eyl that has been used by the Somali pirates as safe haven .
 
Past few years Eyl used to be a den by the pirates to keep the ships hijacked in the high seas while waiting for ransom. But initiatives by the local residents uprooted any pirate legacy.

Puntland government has put in place mechanism to distribute its security apparatus along the coastal areas including Eyl in a bid to bar sea-bandits to use as a base to carry out their illegal activities.
