The killing of an Ethiopian teacher, Kitila Godata, left his family in shock.

The 32-year-old has become a new victim of the ongoing conflict between government forces on the one hand, and the rebels on the other hand, in the Ethiopian Oromia region.

The violence revolves around the demands of a rebel group to liberate “Oromia” – a vast area of ​​land that includes the Oromo, the largest ethnic group in Ethiopia – and because of the strict security measures that followed.

This caused civilians to be caught in the crossfire, among them Kitila, whose family claims he was killed after ten police officers took him from his home in the town of Sikila, on 19 November.
