Weapons Registration to Continue in Next two Weeks

ADDIS ABABA – The State of Emergency Command said weapons registration will continue for the coming two weeks in all rural and urban areas across Ethiopia.

In a statement it issued Wednesday, the Command said it has been decided to continue the weapons registration activities for the coming 15 consecutive days starting as of Thursday.

The decision was made following the request made by the public for additional time for the registration as the directive preciously didn’t include communities in the rural areas, said the Command.

The directive won’t include those who are in the battlefield, the Command indicated.

The Command also said it has evaluated the weapons registration activities conducted as per the directive issued earlier. It said a lot of weapons have so far, been registered in all regional states, commending the public and security forces for their contribution in this regard.
