Following the recent shootings of Ethiopian army at the people in Metema and Chilga areas of Amhara Region, President of Amhara Region Gedu Andargachew calls for immediate investigation. Reports show that at least six civilians were shot by the army, which was convoying construction trucks of a company engaged in road construction in the area. The army along with the security force of the region is working to maintain the peace of the region. “But this incident doesn’t reflect the overall army, as the army is an institution engaged in charge of protecting the peace and security of the country. I don’t believe we should blame the army in general because of this specific incident,” he said, calling for immediate investigation of the incident.
