Ethiopia Confirmed the Abduction of the two-Key ONLF negotiators

February 1, 2014 (CNN iReport) — Five days later after the Kenyan Police says that it was investigating the Ethiopian Security agent’s abduction of two-key Ogaden National Liberation Front’s negotiators,who were abducted from outside a popular restaurant in Upper Hill, Nairobi,reliable sources confirmed that those involved in facilitating with the mission are at Kenyan Police’s hand but Ethiopian masterminders confirmed that Mr, Sulub Abdi Ahmed and Ali Ahmed Hussein are at their hands.

Speaking with Harun Maruf’s VOA Somali service, Ethiopian regional adviser,Abdinur confirmed that the two-key negotiators are at their hands but failed to identify the exact place they are being held and when they as usual by gunpoint be forced to speak without their consent to the media, however, it is obvious now that the action was intended to jeopardize the international backed peace-talks between the government and ONLF.

It’s likely to be that the Ogaden puppet administration of Abdi iley and Ethiopian generals stationed at Ogaden are behind this critical and unethical incident that violated the essential international norm and violated the Kenyan sovereignty.

It has been reporting that the Ethiopian ethnic Tigre generals at Ogaden and the Ogaden puppet administration were unhappy and opposing any peace-talks aiming to solve the long-standing Ogaden Conflict by means of political solution.

Somali diaspora from Ogaden Region reacted angrily and condemned the Ethiopian agents’ abduction of the senior ONLF-negotiators.

Analysts say that this move may affect diplomatic negotiations between ONLF and Ethiopia brokered by Kenyan Government on 2012.

ONLF is a separatist rebel group fighting to make the Somali region of illegal Ethiopian Occupied-Ogaden in eastern Ethiopia an independent state.

ONLF, established in 1984, demands for the autonomy of this region which is a home to about 8-10 million Somali Muslims.
