Zemene revealed the secret. ”I traveled 13 hours barefoot, They held my hand after 11 years” – Zemene Kassie. Zemene Kassie, who is claimed to be a leader of a volunteer Amhara militia called Fano, has been arrested by the Amhara Regional State police. Zemene was detained in the regional capital Bahir Dar City, at a locality called Kebele 03 along with 541 thousand ETB (about 10,000 USD) and other exhibits, according to the regional police. Following the arrest of Zemene, Addis Zeybe’s reporter witnessed a heavy presence of regional special forces in the city. The Fano participated in the government’s counter-attack last year when the Tigrayan forces launched a military offensive and controlled some areas in the Amhara and Afar regions. As the operation to control areas taken by the Tigrayan forces in the Amhara and Afar regions culminated in liberating these areas, a widely circulated document alleged to be proposed by the government with strategies to contain post-war security challenges incited public controversy with the supposition that it’s intended to disarm Fano. This was followed by the government and Amhara region’s statement praising Fano members who fought alongside the allied government forces to defend their country while accusing those who operated “under the veil of the real Fano” of being agents of violence in the Amhara region. The government installed a joint task force to apprehend these members of Fano it took responsible for spreading violence by amassing and using illegal; mobilizing, training, and arming youth fighters, among others.
