The Ethiopian joint security and intelligence task force, which is comprised of the National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS), Ethiopian National Defense Forces (ENDF), the Federal Police Commission, and Information Network Security Administration (INSA) there are 5, 804 “ Fano” members who are detained and under investigation for attempts “to spread violence.” These include those who “were convicted by a court, who were at large, and who were wanted for murder.”
In a statement released this morning to state media, the joint task force also said that as a result of coordinated operations, it was able to avert major security threat including planned “terrorist attacks” on the capital Addis Abeba and its environs by forces affiliated with “Al-Shabaab”, “ISIS”, “Shene”, “TPLF Junta”, and “Fano.”
Accordingly, the joint task claimed that after conducting “a coordinated operation in and around Addis Abeba city” it has captured 554 suspects. Of these, it says “51 [are] members of Fano, 174 members of the TPLF junta group, 98 members of the Shene group, 100 suspects who were trying to incite violence in the city and 31 members of al-Shabaab” who were trying “to infiltrate into the city and carry out terrorist attacks.”
Focusing on the “Fano” group, the joint task force praised those “Fano members” that it said have “fought against” Tigrayan forces “during the law enforcement campaign in the northern part of our country” and said they were “helping the security forces” including “the national defense and other security forces, [and] have contributed to the peace and security in the region today and continued this good work.” But it accused those it said were operating “under the guise” of the real Fano, but spreading violence throughout the Amhara regional state using illegal weapons; it also accused them of recruiting “youths without the recognition of the national defense forces and police institutions, trained them secretly and armed them with illegal weapons.”
It further said that it is apprehending those who are attempting to infiltrate illegal weapons into the capital Addis Abeba by “gathering in various areas of the Amhara region, as well as organizing and coordinating with some extremist diaspora members in foreign countries, and equipping themselves with weapons using the large amount of money they have collected from home and abroad, and taking battlefield and guerilla map training.”
Following a joint operation between the Amhara and federal forces, some 14 members of this “Fano” group are also currently in police custody with “their various secret documents”, the task force said. It accused them of spreading false information using extremist media abroad”, and “moving to establish a transitional government, plotting to attack senior officials of the Amhara region and the federal government and overthrow the government by force.” As a result, “the security threat in the [the Amhara] region has been removed and the area has been returned to peaceful activities.”
Similarly, with regard to the recent security crisis in Gembella and Benishangul Gumuz regional states, as well as in western Oromia zone in Oromia regional state, the task forces says the coordinated attempts by “the members of the TPLF junta group, the Gambella Liberation Front (GLF), the Gumuz People’s Democratic Movement (GPDM) and the ONF/Shene terrorists” to attack the Gambella city and its surroundings, as well as in the town of Gimbi and Dembi Dolo in western Oromia has been “foiled” by the joint task forces of the federal regional security and the community.
As a result of the “actions taken by the task force, many were arrested and 137 members of terrorist groups were killed…the security problem in the region has now been removed and the area has been returned to peaceful activities.”
In a month long joint operation between June and July, in western Oromia, “more than 153 members of the terrorist group” were killed, and “more than 900 are arrest and being investigated” it says. it also claimed that “various group and individual weapons used by the terrorist Shene group, a large number of ammunition and ammunition warehouses, military armor and clothing, vehicles and other assets were seized” in the operation.

Does Ethiopia exist? No. The last time Ethiopia existed was during Haile Selassie regime.There has been no Ethiopia since Derg Regime. What used to be ethiopia is mis-run by group of criminals, mafia in different regions. Addis is run by criminal, mafia, prostitute Abiy and his gangs; Tigray is run by criminal, mafia, prostitute TPLF; Oromia is run by criminal, mafia, prostitute OLF and other similar gangs and other smaller regions of former Ethiopia are run by similar groups.
Is there a force/group in the horizon that is working hard not only to get rid of all the above gang groups but also punish them for their never ending crimes and resuscitate Ethiopia after being on life support for 47 years? I don’t think so. But there is perfect opportunity for a new government of honesty, integrity and rule of law.
Is the criminal Abiy gang talking to TPLF criminal gang a right or wrong thing to do? a Trillion percent wrong thing. Doing so will prove beyond a benefit of doubt that Abiy’s gang is a criminal mafia group. Only criminals hang, chat, talk, wine/dine with criminals. Honest individuals, leaders not only will never every talk, chat with criminals but also will not sleep, will work hard 24/7 and will not leave no stone unturned until all criminals are put in jail.
Why does prostitute Abiy wants to dialogue with his former Masters? Once a willing slave of TPLF like Abiy will always remain a slave. Since Abiy runs a prostitution party, he sold his stinking butt to Criminal, mafia, butt face Biden. Master Biden told Slave Abiy, nigger boy you better talk to my other slaves, TPLF, or I will crush you to ashes. Abiy’s answer was yes Master, any time, any place and any situation.
Another reason for criminal Abiy’s desire to wine and dine with criminal TPLF is money, money and money. Criminal , mafia Biden has promised prostitution/prosperity party of Abiy lots of money if they make peace with TPLF. Mind there is something that unite all three groups, Biden, Abiy and TPLF there have the same GODS, MONEY, MONEY, MONEY and POWER, POWER and POWER.
For Abiy mafia group to get rich by looting ethiopians and addis residents they need the support of TPLF. Abiy want to demarcate his and TPLF’s looting territories and both sides to promise to remain in their looting lanes. For Abiy group to loot and ensalve addis and surrounding regions and smaller regions in the south and west such as Afar and TPLF to loot and enslave Tigray people and also some eritrean/amhara people.
This is pure Trash! If trash could be called pure, that is. They are doing an ethnic cleansing operation and they call it “hig maskeber”. They include a fake list of other groups like OLA/SHENE members destroyed or arrested. It is all a sham. The only thing that was done was to arrest unarmed city dwellers through ethnic profiling using Abiy Ahmed’s spy network. These arrested people are unarmed, did not rob anyone, are not the ones murdering children and women, nor did they burn any villages or farm harvest. If there is law and order, those responsible for four years of destruction, ethnic cleansing, civil war and genocide (the likes of Abiy Ahmed and Debretsion) will be the ones facing criminal charges. By looking at the arrest and kidnapping of journalists Tamirat Negera, Meskerem Abera, Temesgen Desalegn etc., what kind of person is targeted and preyed upon by the vultures and hyenas of the day.
