After Peace Deal with gov.t Ogaden Rebel Fighters Return to Ethiopia

Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF) rebel fighter once banned, a separatist rebel group fighting for the right to self-determination for Somalis in the Somali Region of Ethiopia has returned to Ethiopia yesterday, Fana Broadcasting reported.

High ranking regional government officials and supporters of the rebel group welcomed them as they arrived in Jigjiga.

A month ago a delegation led by WOrkneh Gebeyehu, foreign Ministre of Ethiopia went to Eritrean capital Asmara and held talks with leaders of the rebel group and ONLF reached a peace deal with the Ethiopian government to end armed struggle and return to Ethiopia for a peaceful fight.

The move is following the rapprochement between Ethiopia and Eritrea after the coming of Abiy Ahmed. The rebel has returned from a base in Eritrea, where they were conducting insurgent activities from.

According to the report, the group returned home disarming its soldiers.

The region experienced a considerable security crisis in early August of this year. Thousands of residents were displaced and dozens killed when the region’s Special Forces and youth groups organized by the then president of the region, Abdi Illey who is now in jail, launched an ethnic-based attack against non-Somali Ethiopian communities in the area.

Following the invitation from the Ethiopian government for all exiled political groups to return home, several oppositions parties including Patriotic Ginbot 7 and Oromo Liberation Front came back home.
