Tigray region administration reacts to TPLF assassination


Tigray region interim administration on Friday said that it will work with security forces to reverse the TPLF terror network targeting youth in the region who are working with administration to address challenges in the region and at the national level. 

The statement came a day after investment office head of the region, Embza Tadesse, was assassinated a day after he was kidnapped in Mekelle.

“The attack targeting Tigray youth actively participating in their region’s and their country affairs intended to frustrate the encouraging start,” the interim administration said. 

It vowed to work with security and intelligence forces in a coordinated manner to reverse the ongoing attack against members of the administration.

Furthermore, the interim administration expressed condolences over the assassination of Embza Tadesse. 

It also recalled the series of assassinations targeting members of the interim administration at different levels of government in the region. It said that he was killed by urban terror cells organized by TPLF. 

Relevant federal government bodies have confirmed last month that more than 20 members of the interim Tigray region administration were killed and over 20 kidnapped. 

The fate of those kidnapped is unknown.

  1. There you have it. This statement is not from Addis/Finfine but from Alula’s incarnates from Mekele. Do you think BBC and the gang will post this statement on their news websites? No! They are busy looking for dirt that will incriminate that gem of the colored. They craved and pleaded to their Roman Gods for a nationwide bloodshed on the Election Day but no dice!!! They begged and kissed their Greek Gods an all out war would breakout between the old country and its hostile neighbor but that turned out to be just a fantasy. These are just a bunch of low lives.
