OROMOS ARE ENEMY, declares Abdi Iley
(SomaliNet) — In an impromptu meeting he held today with “elders” of Jigjiga, a very emotional Abdi Iley made startling, but not unexpected, remarks that indicate he may be preparing for war with Oromos.
Abdi Iley told the elders “Dr. Abiy and the Oromos who came to Jigjiga are liars. They are not offering a hand of peace. They have waged a silent war on us. We must prepare to fight them”.
Abdi Iley assigned 5 members of regional parliament to each district and allocated a lot of money for what he said is to stage district-wide demonstrations that support him. He also said we have to create youth in the form of the Oromo Qeerroo in each district.
Abdi Iley’s latest outburst follows the arrest of Colonel Teklay, commander of the national army in Dire Dawa, and 11 other accomplices found guilty of storming a residential house that belongs to a known Somali opponent of Abdi Iley on the orders of Abdi Iley. The army officers and soldiers are said to have been detained yesterday.
General Ma’asho, commander of Eastern division of the Ethiopian army, who is believed to have known about the attack on the house of Ahmed Dahir Ade ( the man attacked), may be behind Abdi Iley’s belligerence.
Huge sums of money continue to be withdrawn from the commercial
Bank of Ethiopia, Jigjga Branch for such and similar operations.
