Ogaden Liberation Front (ONLF) has disarmed nearly two thousands of its armed members in accordance with an agreement it reached with Ethiopian government last year in Eritrea.
The disarmed members will be reintegrated into the regional state either as security forces or as civil servants. This step is seen as a historic move towards peaceful Ethiopia.
In addition, ONLF & Somali regional state gov’t agreed to work together to end decades of poverty, human rights abuse & maladministration the Somali people have suffered. ONLF also pledged to do its best for peace in the region.
ONLF has once branded a terrorist group, but, removed from the terror list last year after Abiy Ahmed was elected as the Prime Minister of Ethiopia.
