Constable Fekadu Nasha
Constable Fekadu Nasha was member of the federal police who killed twelve and wounded two civilians in Bahir Dar last week.

The Police in in Bahir Dar city, the capital of the Amhara regional state 578kms north of Addis Ababa, has named a member of the federal police unit who killed twelve and wounded two civilians in a weekend killing spree as Constable Fekadu Nasha.

The police also said the shooter has had problems with his estranged girlfriend, whose mother was one of the victims.

“We believe a revenge may have triggered the killing,” said an officer in the city’s police commission.tims.

An official from the Amhara region police commission said on Monday his office was working hard to release the identity of the killer “when the time is due.” The officer insisted that from what his office has gathered until Monday the shooting was a “random act.”

What is mind boggling in this horrific tragedy is where were the local police and security people while this mad man was mowing down innocent civilians for half an hour?

Even though the full investigation is under way by the relevant authorities, we think there is something wrong on the time it took to stop him.

We at Tigrai Online would like to say to the victims, their families, and the beautiful city of Bahir Dar, we are all on your side, the entire Ethiopian people are praying for you!
