Federal police arrested a powerful Ethiopian media tycoon on Tuesday after his bodyguards refused orders to disarm, the tycoon’s television station reported, as protests spread in the Oromiya region over the killing of a popular singer.
The Oromia Media Network is owned by Jawar Mohammed, a prominent activist from Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s Oromo ethnic group.
Jawar, an erstwhile ally of Abiy, became a vocal critic after he accused the prime minister of not protecting the interests of the Oromo.
