Reports reaching the Ogaden Online Service desk from both within Ogaden and inside the self styled fiefdom in North Western Somalia confirm that there are no Ogaden National Liberation Army (ONLA) units that are surrounded by neither Woyane militias nor militias from the self-styled Somali fiefdom in the North West Somalia province (Somaliland). The reporters also confirm that there are no ONLA units that are deployed outside the Ogaden borders at the time of going to press.
When inquired what the possible motives could be for the self styled Somali fiefdom in North Western Somalia to spread news of the presence of ONLA units within its territory, our senior reporters all agreed that there is politics and Ethiopian favor-seeking motives behind the spread of this rumor. They have indicated that this news follows recent, unfavorable events where the Woyane regime in Addis Ababa did not provide the welcome mat this new regime was looking for.
Since many within the Woyane militia hierarchy have openly accused the new regime in the self styled fiefdom in the North West of having sympathy for ‘ONLF’, the reporters believe that this type of rumor is meant to show the Woyane regime how ‘determined’ this new regime is in controlling its borders so that the ONLF does not use the region as a transit point.
