Ethiopia’s Intelligence and Security Task Force on Tuesday said it has foiled a plot to attack senior government officials in Addis Ababa, Bahir Dar, Adama and Dire Dawa.
In a press release to ENA, state media, the task force made claims that a clandestine network has been operating in Amhara and “other” regions as well as in Addis Ababa whose members include “intellectuals, media owners and activists.”
Based on the ENA report, the statement named names. Wondwossen Assefa (PhD), Assistant Professor Sisay Awugichew, Professor Maeregu Biabeyin, Worku Tesfamariam, Tesfaye Yehualaeshet, Solomon Lemeneh and Member are some of the names that are linked to the alleged “plot to kill senior government officials.”
Furthermore, the task force alleges that what it calls radical groups who do not represent Amhara people and who are not comfortable about “the relative peace” in the country are propagating that the Amhara people are under extensive oppression and have been trying to create a support base to advance their claims.
That is not it. The task force also makes claims that they are organizing coordinated clandestine military wings.
On the other hand, there have been reports, despite Western media outlets and “International” Human Rights Group demonstrating consistency in ignoring ethnic-based killings and displacement, that ethnic Amhara people have been massacred in a different place, mainly in the Oromia region.
Local Human Rights organizations have reported about it, including on what appears to ethnic discrimination-based house demolition in the News Sheger City – a city that consists of five towns that surround the capital Addis Ababa.
