In the southern city of Eritrea in the town of Adikeih, the regime’s troops confronted by angry men and women to stop them from destroying their homes. When the armed forces headed to the area (mainly populated by Saho speaking people) to demolish their homes. Hundreds of residents came out to streets in solidarity of the victims. Many innocent civilians were seriously injured and were taken into makeshift prisons outside the town denying them basic medical attention. It has been reported that a number of casualties were died of their wounds, hours after the vicious attack. This resistance and civil disobedience by brave Adikeih residents have halted the regime’s plans from demolishing more houses in Adikeih and elsewhere.

Threatening citizens either to pay unimaginable sums of money or face the risk of their homes being destroyed is now increasingly a common practice to feed the beast and generate money. It’s hopes this civil disobedience by heroic Adikeih residents would make the regime think twice before acting to destroy homes.
