ogadenThe pro-Ethiopian  administration established in Hargeisa arrested at least 11 civilians from Ogaden region. All of them are women and children including an infant, Ogaden News Agency (ONA) reported on Saturday.

” On 26 November 2015, Somaliland administration arrested and detained a dozen of innocent women and children including an infant. Four others were disappeared earlier; believed to be extradited to Ethiopia,” said the source.

According to ONA, it is not the first time that the administration established in the northwestern Somalia has extradited civilians from Ogaden region to Ethiopia, where they Ogadenis risk persecution.

These detained civilians will likely be extradited to the Ethiopian government, it added.

Somaliland has a continuing record of detaining and extraditing people from Ogaden region to appease Addis Ababa for alleged countering those want to destroy the good relations between Somaliland and ( Ethiopia) Abyssinia.

An Ogaden National Liberation Front Press released on October 11, 2015, stated that the Somaliland handed over two Ogadenis from Ogaden to Ethiopia.

The ONLF statement said Mr. Ahmed Sheikh Muhumed Omar and Mr. Kayd Mohamed Askar were traveling to Southern Somaliland on their way to the Kenyan refugee camps.

“The relatives of the two victims contacted the administration and the elders in Hargeisa and were given assurances that the detainees will be released.”

However, after signing a new one-sided security agreement with the Ethiopian regime in Dire Dawa in August this year, the administration in Hargeisa is now proving its loyalty to the Ethiopian regime by starting again the handing over of civilians from Ogaden Somaliland to the Ethiopian government, the ONLF said.

Somaliland shares Somalis from Ogadenia, like any other Somali speaking inhabitants, language, culture, ethnicity, religion and even border, but favored Ethiopia over Ogadenis and has been repeatedly handing over Somalis From Ogaden region to Ethiopian Security forces over the past 10 years. Those extradited to Ethiopia have been detained, tortured, executed in this way or coerced into confessing or naming family members accused of supporting the Liberation movement, The Ogaden National Liberation Front, who were in return arrested, tortured and killed.

  1. As much I detest and would like existence of this tribal warlord region and self-deluded region of the so-called Somaliland should never have seen the light of the day, I am sure the Ogaden stooges themselves in Somali Regional State lead by Omar Iley and many others are the primary culprits of this crime and other submissive activities in Ethiopia. They would do anything to prostitute themselves and their people to the highest bidder. On the one hand, the cash out and milk off the TPLF regime in every penny, and on the other hand, they go to the bush in the name of tribal liberation name that had little success and deny the existence of majority of other Somali people living in the region. To get respect from others and live in indignity you have to lead by example. Ogadens are not telling the obvious truth to each other and deluding themselves in process. Did you ever heard the familiar English saying of that charity starts right home? Be honest to yourself and admit your ignomous blunders! And only and only after then you can point fingers to others or ask support of others.

  4. Well I see one amhara is gloating but don’t forget it is we the Somalis who put TPLF in power and yes they turn against us by not returning the good favor we did for them but at least the Eritrea has left utopia and the amhara tribe is devastated at seeing their creation of their little utopia turning into dystopia for them. I also agree with you when you say the tigreans are clever because they outmaneuvered you for the past 25 years.kkkk No body is buying this utopian shit with amhara being the top dog. You guys have a mounting to claim and too many enemies to conquer like the somalis,tigrean oromos and Eritreans.

I wish I am born as an Amhara …. anyway Kidiga my Somali mother tells me that we have distant blood from the Shoa Amharas ..sometimes she jokes and says we all are Amharas they are the first people on earth ….. and she goes on to tell the story which is now a folk story os teh somali people
