The students of Gondar University in Amhara region of Ethiopia today protested against the latest massacre of civilians in Oromia region Wellga area where similar massacres occured.
During the demonstration the students urged the Government of Ethiopia to bring to justice the armed group and those associated with the group who were engaged in the armed attack that reportedly killed over 400 civilians including children and elders.
It is reported that the massacre that reportedly took place on Wednesday for four hours is executed by the armed Oromo group known as Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) Shene.
In addition to those killed some 2000 civilians are reportedly forced to leave their residents, while an unknown number of civilians are abducted by the group, which is labeled by the Ethiopian Parliament as a terrorist group along with the Tigray peoples Liberation Front (TPLF).

Reports show like the previous massacres in different parts of Oromia region, all those massacred on Wednesday are Amhara ethnic groups. Some of those who demonstrated opposing the massacre today in Gondar are heard that the federal government of Ethiopia needs to cleanse itself (its system) especially from the corrupt officials who are allegedly associated with the OLF Shene.
They questioned why the Government of Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has failed to stop the continued killings of Amhara ethnic civilians in Oromia and Benishangul Gumz. Because serious action was not taken against those who committed the massacre by the federal government, now many Ethiopians especially those in the diaspora are accusing of the Government of Abiy Ahmed for conspiring with the attackers. The demonstrators today urged the Government of Ethiopia to make accountable the local offcials where such massacres against Amharas takes place frequently such as, Wellega, and Benishangul Gumz, among others.
