There are Somalis from Bari in Socotra.
Mostly pirates who have fuel stations there.
It only has about 40,000 people.

The island is said to be overflowing with naago cadcad. Waa mid qabo oo mid sii daa, and if you play your card right and have the wherewithal to maintain multiple wives, you can marry up to four, the maximum allowed by Islam.

Although there are minorities of Somalis, Indians and descendants of black slaves in Suqatra, it has always been a South Arabian Island and the majority of the people there like the Mehris, Harsus, Sherids and Batharis are South Arabian descent and speak both Arabic and the Mahra languages which are also spoken by their neighbours and relatives in Dhofar in Oman. They lived there for centuries.

How you doing bro? Long time no see.

As for the topic, Socotra is inhabited by south arabian mahra (not arabs) and some horners/somalis. Those islands belong to us and along with aden/south yemen we will reclaim them inshallah.
