Twelve hours after news of arrest broke to Ethiopians in social media through Ethiopian Satellite Television(ESAT), Amdom Gebreselassie disclosed today the information about his arrest is not correct.
- “My friends the news that Amdom is arrested is not correct. I am not arrested. Thank you for your concerns,”
he wrote on his facebook page.
borkena reported the news yesterday citing ESAT which claimed that it got the news from sources in Mekelle.
ESAT stood its ground when it said today that its sources confirmed again that Amdom was arrested near Aksum Hotel in Mekelle and that Arena Tigray party officials wanted the information not to be public in an effort to ease tension with police while discussing his release.
