OLF-Shane Kidnaps Passengers to Debre Libanos

In the latest string of kidnapping, the radical ethnic Oromo nationalist group which the government calls OLF-Shane , has reportedly kidnapped passengers en route to Debre Libanos, home to a monastic community of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church.

According to a report from Wazema Radio, the kidnapping occurred on Wednesday around 6 P.M. local time along the main road from Addis Ababa to Debre Libanos. The incident took place in the Wachale district, specifically within the Jate locality, approximately 75 kilometers from Addis Ababa.

The exact number of passengers abducted remains unspecified, but they were traveling in a public transport vehicle displaying a plate number from the Oromia region of Ethiopia.

The report further detailed that on the same day, unidentified gunmen kidnapped an unspecified number of truck drivers, relocating them to an unknown destination.

Kidnappings in the Oromia region have been occurring persistently for several years now. The government refers to the group as OLF-Shane, and it engaged in peace negotiations in Tanzania in November this year, which concluded without an agreement. Both the armed group and Abiy Ahmed’s administration have exchanged accusations regarding the breakdown of the peace talks.

Presently, the group is actively involved in an insurgency within the Wollega area of Ethiopia. Abiy Ahmed’s government has asserted that the group’s strength has waned due to military actions taken against it.

  1. This is called ‘liberating people’ à la ‘liberation front’. I told you that a million times but you have not been listening to me. How you ‘liberate’ people? Kill them, kidnap them for ransom they can’t pay, harass and displace them. Then you will have whole place to yourself calling it a spanking new ‘republic’! And nobody they don’t know will be invited to the party!!!! Wow!!!!

  2. Most revered Dear Ittu Aba Farda ………doing well ??

    A spanking new’republic’ of Amhara had been thwarted before it came into being.
    Future leaders of the United States of America, like Andargachew Tsige, Honorary Doctorate degree holder Yonas Biru, and head of the communication bureau Debtera Habtamu Ayalew, are still scratching where they do not itch.

    “I see it as something that saves the life of another young man or woman.” This is totally accurate. There is nothing these individuals can do but generate mayhem and violence. The Prosperity Party was backed by everybody when Tigrayans were fighting to overthrow this genocidal Ethiopian government and put an end to the misery of the rest of Ethiopia.

    Notwithstanding, no innocent person should die for the benefit of a small group of radical Amhara elites. Abiy Ahmed’s decision to arrest those elderly men was advantageous for both his own regime and the other innocent civilians who might have been harmed by the ostensibly peaceful demonstration.

    May the All-Powerful God spare the helpless Amhara people, the Oromos people, and the entire Ethiopian people from the sword of the evil Abiy Ahmed and his foreign supporters, such as the UAE, Turkey, and other unamed entites.
