Ethiopia is extraditing an Ethiopian-American man who is linked to the deaths of two Ethiopian-Americans some time in December 2016 in Fairfax County, Virginia.

According to a report by Fana Broadcasting Corporate, Yohannes Nessibu, is currently in police custody and preconditions to extradite him are being finalized.

The Ethiopian Federal Attorney General decided to hand over the suspect after verifying that the suspect is charged in a court in FairFax county, Virginia.

The bodies of Henok G. Yohannes and Kedest Sileshi Simeneh ,couples, was found two days before Christmas in 2016. The US government has been working on extradition of the suspect since police authorities in the country found out that the suspect has left the US.

Yohannes Nessibu reportedly escaped to Ethiopia same day he committed the crime paying $US 3000 for a one way ticket.

  1. Ethiopia is also finalizing the process to extradite Seye Abraha and others to Eritrea .

    Eritrea is saying Seye need to be extradited to Eritrea due to what he did during the Ethio-Eritrean war crimes.

  2. By 2021 GERD is expected to produce 750 MEGA WATTS and by 2023 GERD will produce all of the 6.4 GIGA WATTS. With constant not inturupted electricity many great treatment centers can open to help the displaced in today’s Ethiopia, eventhough Ethiopian people are not nice to each other with 4 millions in Ethiopia displaced by their own very close neighbors, being able to have your own residence in a sanctuary city of New York as Gigi does written in the link below , with no nagging defaming roommate/neighbor is a blessing.

    The life Mr. Gebrekristos Desta who lived in New York until his very last breath in the 1960’s is a dream of almost all single persons of Ethiopia.
    New York is still a dream destination for SF habeshas that want to live away from the back stabing Ill willed evil habesha frinemies that bother attack any chance they got regularly.

    After 50+ years later Artist Gebrekristos Desta’s death, locking your door , dieing peacefully at your home is considered to be a dream come true for the vast majority of Ethiopians.That is why I say Let Gigi live the lifestyle that most Ethiopians only long for to have one day.

    To Gigi
    Live your life the way you choose to, DONOT let anyone tell you your small room is not enough for you. Atleast you donot have to go room to room every minute checking if burglars are in, like those living in mansions do.Many will follow you, move out of SF to NY soon too. SF bay area habesha is mostly too scandalous that are always in competition amongst each other ,one good example that happened to many just this past Easter day was the ones with big residences who stayed in this country long invited people for Easter lunch to their homes .when the invited guests went take a bite those that invited them turn around and tell their families that you are an uninvited guest buster starved begger they fed. That is why I say You are better off where you are.

    Texas is another place filled with people who left SF bay area just like you did.

    Sincerely, Almaz

  3. I have always wondered as to why Ethiopia wouldn’t extradite this evil man after be brutally murdered two innocent young souls over a minor drug-related altercation. Thank God it finally did! He may face a death penalty for his grisly murders and the pain he added on their families die to the fun he made of them in his rap songs…….
