Three days after news of his kidnapping emerged on social media, there are now new reports that Abune Bernabas, archbishop of Waghumera zone in Amhara region, is safe.
Adebabay Media, whose YouTube channel has been closed for several days now, reported on its social media page saying that it has got information that Abune Bernabas is safe. It cited sources, unspecified, who happened to meet the archbishop.
His current location is undisclosed too but it appears that he is still in Sekota, seat of the Waghumera zone – which is said to be under the control of the TPLF forces.
Obtaining information from Ethiopia has been difficult due to disconnection of the phone line in the areas under the TPLF control and constantly changing circumstances of the situation on the ground.
