The group however denied involvement in killing the spy agent. He said they had investigated members including former spy chief Fahad Yassin, Yassin Farey, Abdullahi Kulane, Asma Yusuf and Abdiqani Wadna Qabad of NISA. "During the course of the investigation, the commission did not come up with any evidence that Ikraan Tahliil Farah was missing at the hands of NISA officials," Kamey said. Gen.

Kamey said the commission's investigation revealed that there was no evidence that Ikraan Tahliil was in NISA custody. General Abdullahi Bulle Kamey also said they visited the office of the National Security and Intelligence Agency and reviewed CCTV cameras.
