This was an intelligence tip to the sector one, to the AMISOM forces and we went and found it. Look at the bombs, those 120

STORY
AMISOM troops together with the Somali National Army have today captured an assortment of weapons and ammunition from al Shabaab suspects in the capital Mogadishu. These were seized at the Asuman Atto Garage in Mogadishu town during a cordon and search operation conducted this morning. The weapons recovered include 151 tortoise grenades, 238 Multi- Grenade Launchers, 43 boxes of 82 millimeter motor fuses, rocket propel grenade pipes as well as RPG shells and guns. Also recovered were sipper riffles with attached telescopes, anti-tanker bombs and various types of guns and ammunition. The AMISOM Force Commander Lt. Gen. Silas Ntigurirwa says such operations are part of the wider effort to improve security in Mogadishu and Somalia in general.
“Since we launched operation Eagle, we also launched the cordon and search in
Mogadishu which is a bigger activity conducted by AMISOM troops, particularly sector one commander, which is occupied by UPDF forces, jointly, with the Somali National Ar
my, with NISA and Somali people,” he said.
 Lt. Gen. Silas Ntigurirwa further noted that some of the weaponry captured was already assembled and loaded for use and could have been used to cause extensive harm to the Somali people.
“Today we conducted a cordon and search in Mogadishu and we captured a lot of
military equipment, which you can see here and some of it was already fixed, for example, you can see this ammunition which was already fixed to be used this night. Because of our cooperation, we captured all of them, we have also a cargo there, with a lot of ammunition, bombs and there are many guns there. I think this is a good sign which shows the international community, which assures the Federal Government of Somalia and the Somali people that very soon, Somali will get peace and security,
 he added. The Sector Commander Brig. Dick Olum applauded the Somali people for providing key intelligence information that has facilitated frustration of several attacks by the al Shabaab. He however called for vigilance, warning that al Shabaab terrorists easily blend into communities and may not be easily identified.
“As the sector one commander, there is
no al Shabaab on whose chest has been written that am al Shabaab. No al Shabaab has been written that am al al Shabaab.
