The Addis Abeba Police claimed that two people had died in riots and other disturbances in the market after Friday prayers at the Anwar Mosque in the city.
The Muslim community in Addis Abeba arranged a protest march there in opposition to the mosque’s impending and completed demolition by the new Sheger municipal authority.
According to information obtained, the main objective of the gathering is for the new Sheger municipal administration to immediately suspend its plans to destroy mosques.
The Addis Abeba police then dispersed the Muslim protesters at the Anwar Mosque. It should be remembered that in a letter to Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, the Supreme Council of Ethiopian Islamic Affairs sought an immediate solution for the mosques that are being destroyed in Sheger city.
According to the police, two persons were injured in a brawl that occurred in the Gas Terra area and eventually died after being transferred to a hospital for treatment. In addition, four persons required medical attention.
In addition to the 37 law enforcement officers ordered to execute the law, 15 separate police auxiliary units were also dispatched.
According to the police report, the Addis Abeba Public Transport Service Company’s two buses suffered damage. The security forces were able to control the disturbance when it tried to spread from the Anwar Mosque to Gas Terra, Korkoto Terra, Sebategna, and other sites.
