Dawud Ibsa, actual name Firew Ibsa, is Chairman of the Oromo Liberation Front. Dawud Ibsa born in Abuna village, Horro Guduru District in Welega in 1952.As per a report by Walta, Dawud Ibsa who is the leader of OLF reportedly said that he will not disarm his fighters.
“The talk that OLF returned to Ethiopia after an agreement with the government of Ethiopia to disarm and struggle peacefully is baseless. There is no agreement where we agreed to disarm. There is no reason for us to disarm while there is an armed party [seemingly a reference to the government]” he is quoted as saying.
