Today it’s reported that the former Amhara Police Commissioner Abere Adamu mysteriously died. This was just mere days after he was sacked from this office. The Commissioner was also in-charge of Amhara Special Forces, which have been involved in various atrocities and horrific crimes across the Republic.
The Special Forces have been used as tool to silence opposition, get rid of ethnic groups and participate in massacres. Therefore, his a war-criminal who got taken out. He surely knew too much and needed to be silenced too.
That he died now is suspicious. The state ways of manoeuvring this isn’t better either. As they are sending the body from Amhara to Addis for autopsy. The circumstances of his death is all unclear and no official announcement of it too.
That makes it seems like it was a statement. Like the state was worried of what knowledge he has or what sort of operation he was operating. In such a manner, that they had to get rid of him and possibly assassinate him. That is mere speculation, but this man spoiled the narrative of the Prime Minister too and the overnight surprise attack on the Northern Command ahead of the Law Enforcement Operation, which the deceased Police Commander stated was well-prepared for and had the troops around the Tigray Region.
This is why the suspicious death. Open a box of questions. Just like the coup of Amhara Regional State in 2019. Where all the yes-men of the Prime Minister got appointed after. Now, his also dead and maybe another puppet will get installed. Clearly, the Prosperity Party can easily get rid of its leaders and just appoint new ones. Except for their beloved one on the top.
Adamu died by default of the monster he was part of unleashing. When you start a war and participate in warfare. There will be bystanders, innocent civilians and partakers who fall on the sword. He was a leader and a man who ordered death of others.
Adamu knew what was going on and stood strong in the middle of bloodbath, massacres and possible genocide. He was okay with the internally displaced people, refugees, starvation and in general the military operation in Tigray. The man stood by all of this and did his duties.
That is why his memory will be the blood on his hands. He maybe died unfavourably and with blunt force. The same sort of force he has ordered upon others. He was maybe taken out, because the “high power” was afraid of him spilling the beans. They wouldn’t except him talking and this man did talk to much in the past.
Adamu is now another one of the men who was trusted by Abiy, but fell on his sword. Another one who has taken the bullet and paid the ultimate price of death. This is the reform that Abiy brings and Adamu is just the last example of this tragic endeavour of the Prime Minister. Peace.
