Somali’s government spokesman on Thursday returned home from Turkey where he had been receiving treatment for wounds he sustained in an attack.
Islamist Militants targeted Mohamed Ibrahim Moalimu in mid-January.
A policeman at the scene of the attack said the attacker attempted to get onto the vehicle transporting the spokesman before detonating explosives, partially destroying the vehicle.
Al-Shabaab had claimed the attack in a statement.
Officials from the office of the prime minister and media personnel welcomed him at Mogadishu’s Aden Adde airport.
Somalia’s Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble received Moalimu at his office and expressed his happiness that the government spokesperson had recovered.
Moalimuu has been a spokesman and adviser to the prime minister for more than a year, having previously been a journalist with the BBC.
He has survived several attacks on residences where he has been staying, escaping unharmed from a 2019 attack on one property which was besieged for almost 22 hours.
