JUST IN: 29 YOUNG SOMALIS ARE HELD IN GOLO ODAA IN OROMIA REGION
29 young Somalis are held at Golo Odaa district in East Hararghe Zone while they were fleeing abuse and threats to their lives. They were trying to reach the Somali Region by foot.
14 of them are arrested in Golo Odaa distric today and are from the Bokha distric all in West Hararghe Zone of Oromia Region.
The rest of the 15 people were held more than 5 days. These 15 individuals are from the Burqa Dimtu district.
As per sources that spoke to jigjigaherald.com, their cash and other belongings were confiscated after being badly beaten.
These events resemble the circumstances surrounding the Gadulla massacre and if the Federal and Oromia Regional government don’t act quickly, this may turn in to more worse humanitarian disaster.
