Ethiopia Crisis: Obasanjo jets to Addis Ababa ‘for mediation’.

0

Nigeria’s former president Olusegun Obasanjo on Monday jetted to Ethiopia to mediate in the conflict between​ the nation’s government and the northern Tigray region, his spokesman said.

Both the Ethiopian government and the African Union said they had no information on any visit by Obasanjo, who has previously acted as a United Nations peace envoy in DR Congo.

Ethiopia’s central government announced a military operation in the northern Tigray region on November 4 in a dramatic escalation of a long-running feud with the region’s ruling party, the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF).

The fighting — which has sent thousands fleeing over the border into Sudan — has sparked fears of civil war and concerns it could spread across the region after rockets were fired at an airport in neighbouring Eritrea.
