Another senior police officer, Major Abdibasid Mohamud Agey, who was the former deputy commander of Waliyow  Adde Division of the Banadir Regional Police, was also killed in the bombing.

Somali Police spokesman Major Sadiq Adan Ali Dobishe told the media that those wounded in the attack also include senior police officers.
