The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has foiled a plot to shoot and kill Ethiopian journalist Abebe Gellaw in Boston, Massachusetts.
The plot was allegedly orchestrated by a man named Guesh Abera, a Boston resident and parking lot attendant in his mid-thirties. Guesh and his three accomplices, who are suspected of being spies and fanatic members of the tyrannical regime in Ethiopia, were determined to “eliminate” the journalist and press freedom activist, sources say.
Abebe traveled to Boston last month to attend a fundraiser for the Ethiopian Satellite TV and Radio. The suspects had planned to shoot him during his sojourn.
According to the sources, four Boston residents suspected of being agents of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front, an ethnic-based rebel group that has brutally ruled Ethiopia for the last 21 years, had taken steps to execute the journalist. Guesh, the ringleader of gang, was reportedly communicating with his accomplices using a fake Facebook account (Hailemarim Desalegn) and emails. FBI agents reportedly intercepted some of the exchanges detailing the plot. in Boston.
