Former head of Ethiopia's military conglomerate METEC arrested after allegations
Ethiopia has arrested the former head of the military-run industrial conglomerate METEC, the state-run broadcaster EBC reported on Tuesday.
Kinfe Dagnew was arrested last night, EBC said in a breaking news broadcast.
Dozens of Ethiopian security officials appeared in court on Monday after the attorney general accused security chiefs of ordering a grenade attack on Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and alleged widespread corruption at METEC.
