According to a news report by Bloomberg published today the Ogaden National Liberation Front, ONLF will demand a referendum on self-determination for Somali region. Bloomberg quoted ONLF foreign secretary Ahmed Yassin Abdi as saying

We want to achieve self-determination recognized by international law under the current Ethiopian constitution,” Ahmed Yassin Abdi, the ONLF’s foreign secretary, said by phone from the Kenyan capital, Nairobi. “We want our people to have a right to decide.” He said his group has no preconditions for the talks. The region’s new president expressed support for greater autonomy.

The Somali regional state has been in a great turmoil since the federal government illegally removed the president of the state from power and arrested him. There was no due process for removing the president and other other high state officials. Sure there has been trouble in the region in connection with border issues with other states, but not worst than what happened in the regional state of Amhara when they uprooted thousands of Tigrai origin civilians from their houses and business and many lost their lives killed by armed thugs.
