Two pastors beheaded as violence against Christians flares in Ethiopia

1 min read

Two Ethiopian pastors have been beheaded in Sebeta, near the capital Addis Ababa, in an outburst of violence against Christians at the end of October, reported a Barnabas Fund contact.

The contact said that the situation on the ground has become “quite challenging for Christians” and many churches have been burnt this year. There is also an unverified report that a group of Christians has been forced out of the majority-Muslim town of Ginir, located 303 miles south-east of the capital.

Abiy Ahmed, prime minister of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia

The army was called in to restore order after 67 people were killed and 213 wounded in Addis Ababa and the Oromia region during several days of unrest.

Muslim activist and high profile media mogul, Jawar Mohammed, is thought to have provoked the unrest when he announced to his supporters that the government had removed his personal security protection. Subsequent street protests against Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed erupted in violence.

Since September 2018, violent ethnic clashes have led to some two million Ethiopians becoming internally displaced.

From Barnabas Fund contacts


  1. The first phase was to break the arms and spirits of the Nephtegnas, as Shimeles at the Irecchaa in Finfinne announced , the breaking was done by finishing the Nephtegna’s leaders armed forces head Asaminew , Ambachew , Saere , Fano , Baldera and alike.

    Now the second phase is being implemented, by dismembering the broken Nephtegna just in time before the Nephtegna’s broken spirits and the Nephtegna’s broken arms begin to heal back, phase two is being done swiftly with the signature slick methods, since Church cannot exist without the elder leaders they will not even feel phase two, until phase three or above is implemented.

  2. You guys are a disgrace to you race and and nation.
    why do you need to write what religion Jewar Mohammed follows. Its a kind of intimidation you guys use to eliminate from the political environment someone from the minorities or Islamic faith background.
    Make no mistake that the time of One religion, one country and one people is gone!!!
    Ethiopia is for nation and nationalities and whom respect their rite to exists.
    If you are one of those fools witting your dead kings to resurrect, that never happens. Therefore, get used it because Jawar Mohammed is going to be the first democratically elected PM Of Ethiopia!

  3. The Amara Orthodox Christian priests extremists are responsible for perpetrating these two Evangelical Pastors death.

    The Amara Orthodox extremist Christians must be put in jail right away to ensure the safety of the Ethiopian people .
