Among the victims of that dark day was also his sister who also gave birth to twins in the police station they were concentrated like a chicken hen, in a scene reminescent of the Nazi concentration camps.

Among the victims where also 7 seven of her kids who where slaughtered with ‘machoo‘, the weapon of choice for Oromos due to it’s brutality, while one of them was an eleven years old girl who was gang-raped amd slaughtered like an animal.

He was also the uncle of another 14 year old named Amina Abdi (not her real name due to privacy reasons) and serioulsy injured which is recovering now in a hospital.
