Think how terrible that scene will be when 800 living people will become zombies in the streets in no time. The dead bodies of many of them lay on the road for many days. First the noise of bullets, the screams of people and then the silence. This is not a frightening fantasy but a true event of Ethiopia’s holiest city. Just as humans were killed here, animals are not killed as ruthlessly.
Those who are unaware of this incident must have been raising the question that why so many people were killed. So know that all these people were killed in order to save their holy arch of Coventry. This arch, considered to be very holy among the Christian people, has been kept under the supervision of security personnel in St. Mary’s Church of Tigray region. A revolt broke out between the revolting civilian team and the soldiers to get this arch. Bullets started firing from both sides. The soldiers had to avoid this arch by any means and the robbers wanted that arch at any cost. This bloody game happened due to this holy arc.
Clashed with death for religion
After hearing the sound of gunfire, hundreds of locals gathered near the church to help the soldiers and save the arch. Some engaged in saving the Ark and some in helping the soldiers. Seeing the crowd of people, the rebel started firing bullets at the citizens instead of running away. More than 800 people lost their lives in this shootout, not one or two. The dead bodies of people remained on the road for many days.
Let us tell you that this incident is not of today but last month of November, but the truth of this incident has now come in front of the world. The reason for this was that Ethiopia’s PM Abiy Ahmed had shut down the Internet and phone services of the entire country, after which this country was completely cut off from contact with the world. Now the Internet and phone services have become somewhat normal, after which the world is getting to know about this incident.
University lecturer told the truth to the world
The information of this incident has been told to the world through the Times website by a university lecturer named Getu Mak. Maak became an eyewitness to this massacre. Mak says that the people of this region feared increasing tension here since November. Along with this, he also feared that his holy arch would be either taken to another city or destroyed. Maq says that the robbers did not show any pity for the innocent and unarmed people there and continued to fire bullets.
Everything changed after the coup
The power of this country was occupied by the Tigray Liberation Army for 27 years before Abia Ahmed became PM. Please tell that the population of Tigray community is 6 percent of the total population of this country. Despite having a small population, this community dominated the politics of the country. The Tigray Liberation Army had to withdraw from power because corruption and anarchy had started growing throughout the country in their session. After this, Abi Ahmed was elected the new PM of the country in 2018.
