Ethiopia’s Security and Intelligence Task Force on Friday said it has arrested 19 individuals linked to TPLF terror group, as it called them.

“Nineteen terrorist group members who received a mission from TPLF [Tigray People’s Liberation Front ] to incite chaos in Addis Ababa and in the areas close to it are arrested,” the Task Force said, as reported by the state media. 

The Task Force also made claims that “our enemies” have made every attempt they can to make Addis Ababa a centre of terrorist activity. 

Attempts to smuggle assault rifles and group weapons, hide them in vehicle parts, and store them in secret locations in the capital have been foiled with support and coordination between the community and security forces, it was said. 

Furthermore, the task force made claims that the ‘terrorist groups” in recent months made changes to appraoches to create instability.  They have been engaged in criminal activities including robbery and horrific killings in towns surrounding Addis Ababa, and the aim was, it said, to make residents feel insecure. 

According to the EBC report, Addis Ababa Police, Defense Force, Federal Police and National Intelligence and Security Services (NISS) were coordinating to make the arrest. 

Video footage of the suspects was shown on national television and their names were disclosed. 

Four of the suspects are linked to crimes committed on Ethiopia’s ride-sharing service (it is called Ride). Their names are : Shewit Hadis, Dawit Alemu, Berihu Nayzghi and Haileab Worku.

Six of the suspects are described as partners in crime.  Bereket Mezgebe, Senay Hailay. Meregu Berhe, YikunoAmlak Amare, Tsehaye Tesfaye and Daniel Gebremariam are in this group. 

Those are also those linked to armed robbery. They are nine. Filmon Hintsa, Abush Gebre Egziabhier, Mesle Abadi, Chernet Wudu, Abush Giday, Hiluf Fetsegu, Woldegebriel Hiwot, Henock Berhane and Kebrom Nigussu are in this group. 

Police are claiming that it has got concrete evidence of the crimes.

It is not something unusual to make terrorism-related arrests in the capital Ababa. There had been cases where al-Shabaab suspects were arrested. 

The latest arrest is linked to TPLF terrorism. The TPLF leaders have been vowing that they will launch a multifaceted attack anywhere in Ethiopia. 

But the police, as indicated above, is making claims that is has got “tangible evidence”

  1. Very sad Day!! Very Sad News!!

    Be humane, Be a Human Being and Be a Voice of the Voiceless Amhara Genocide!! Save Amhara Live!!!

    They can not communicate with the outside world.
    Abiy Ahmed and Oromia Zone have cut the internet, light and any kind of communication in order to make Amhara Genocide Operation Successful.

    While distracting with TPLF news Amharas are getting massacred in Wellga Oromia Zone Ethiopia right now.

    Oromo Prosperity Party OLF/Shene/OFC and OLA is slaughtering Pregnant women, men, child and every Amhara they found anywhere. Houses are getting burned and looted. Abiy government has cut/disconnected internet to keep Genocide victims die quity and way from becoming the most gruesome news of the civilized day.

    The Oromia Zones have passed decision to many district Oromo officials to provide assistance and cover to OLF/Shene/OFC and OLA to burn Amhara houses and massacre every Amhara they found.

    Innocent Amhara people in Wellga, Oromia Zone Ethiopia are pleading and crying for help!!! The government is has cut telephone and internet connection in those Oromia Zone where it has prepared for Amhara Genocide.

  2. Will the empty suit blabber mouth masquerading as the premier of Ethiopia, while being a duplicitous Oromumma butchers leader, chairman and inspiration ever arrest the murderous Oromo militant zealots and fanatics hiding under his wing??? The chatterbox and tireless speaker and liar in chief, in the past 4 years since his ascension to power, has scored a mind boggling 10 Pinocchio’s at lying, fib telling and bamboozling gullible Ethiopians, 1 Pinocchio being a liar pant is on fire. Ethiopia in the hands of this demagogue has witnessed hitherto unseen bloodshed, murder of hundreds of thousands, displacement of tens of millions, never ever seen in her thousands years of history. These incompetent fools, TPLF sympathizers, OLF enablers from the prime minister down to the unqualified mayor of Addis Ababa ( the reader is herewith reminded that 50 years ago Addis Ababa was blessed with having a Carnegie Mellon, PhD civil engineer as her mayor, Dr. Haile Giorgios Workeneh), and down to the Kebele Oromumma usurper with blood soaked hands and blood drenched criminals are all the bane of Ethiopia.

    Nobody, nobody!!!!!! should trust anything that comes out of the pie holes of these fools.

  3. don’t buy these mutterings above which could as well be masquerading tplf. there seems to be created some fake antagonism between the two biggest tribes in order to have them fight it again. Go fool someone else. The topic above is about tplf operatives in the capital and these robbers you see are only a sample. There are so many more we know in all sorts of places – hoping that tdf will overrun Addis one more time (Alas, failed and now cowering for negotiation). I cannot understand this game – what if the tplf was successful – you think they will not revenge all people in Addis and elsewhere.Think of shene and tplf in power and what a country this will be – maybe they will kill 50% of the country in the first month alone! That is why God is with Ethiopia…

    • TPLF does not talk like that. That absolute foolishness has expired and gone with TPLF. The one muttering above sounds very much like the same old paid OLF/Buffoon Abiy cadre dying to save the Orommumma savage cannibals feeding on innocent Amhara blood . The foolish Buffoon is mishandling the Premier position, duty and responsibly with empty foolish talks. Don’t blame Ethiopians to have high standard because that was what they were used to years ago.

      No single Amhara or Afar should die to protect Orommuma blood suckers. The roads should be left open to TPLF fighters if they want to go to Addis Ababa. Let Buffoon Abiy Ahmed pack up the loot and flee to Zimbabwe to join his idol Cold Blooded Mengistu. ..

    Humble Commentary, 15 Sept 2022
    a). It will keep on going.
    b). It is NOT the LIFE of those who order the killings.
    c). It is the down to earth ordinary human beings that takes the sacrifice for the benefit of those who order.
    d). It is the greatest crime perpetrated by a few smart-aleck individuals, born to be masters of the down-
    trodden human beings.
    e). That is the LIFE of BLACK AFRICANS
    f) And that is why, Colonialism strive for ever and ever ……..
    g). And the Good Lord up in heaven raises ‘his/her/its’ hands to bless those who sacrifice their LIFE and
    expected to be so for eternity.
    h). Stay tuned for more entertainment on the existence of the ordinary human beings.
    i) And as one of the colonial powers put it “C’est la Vie” !!!!!! Indeed, it is the EXISTENCE [NOT living} of the
    unfortunate, down-trodden, pure hearted BLACK AFRICANS.
    j) Let the rest of us — fortunate enough to be on a different strata — relax and enjoy LIFE, in our own way
    like me , for example, peacefully scribbling what ever comes to my mind [what ever it is!!!]

    Dear Editor:
    If you find the above to be not-acceptable (for any reasoning) I will NOT have the slightest grudge if you just throw it into the waste – basket. — cutting it into pieces, of course !

  5. Empty suit still talking but nobody is listening!!!!!

    Thank you for pointing out about Dr. Haile Giorgios Workeneh one of the most brilliant and educated former Mayor of Addis Ababa.

    “These incompetent fools, TPLF sympathizers, OLF enablers from the prime minister down to the unqualified mayor of Addis Ababa ( the reader is herewith reminded that 50 years ago Addis Ababa was blessed with having a Carnegie Mellon, PhD civil engineer as her mayor, Dr. Haile Giorgios Workeneh), and down to the Kebele Oromumma usurper with blood soaked hands and blood drenched criminals are all the bane of Ethiopia.” Well Said!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Let the collection of Orommuma ignoramus Adanech Abebe and Lair in chief Abiy Ahmed cringe and disappear!! The only thing “The chatterbox and tireless speaker and liar in chief, in the past 4 years..” cannot steal, buy, produce, rob at gunpoint or come close is the Carnegie Mellon, PhD civil engineer Degree and knowledge.

    Ethiopia earned so much respect then all by the contributions of those highly qualified civil servants and government officials that had high standard for education, discipline and moral.

    Of course as everyone knows today and after the Derg, education standard dwindled down to zero. Ethiopians are not respected when travelling aboard. Ethiopians are known refugees, poverty and destitution all created by OLF and TPLF tribalism . Amhara Genocide and war by TPLF and OLF clan savages.
