Lemma Megersa, Oromo regional state president, remarked on the killings in Burayu. “No one has the right nor authority to chase Ethiopians.”
From what he said, there was also a plan to incite ethno-religious based attacks in Assela.
He also said that more than 200 suspects are detained so far in connection with the incident and that about 300 displaced people have returned to Burayu.
Lemma blamed groups he didn’t name for relentless effort to bring about ethnic based violence between ethnic Amhara and ethnic Oromo.
