Protesters Destroy Dangote Cement Factory in Ethiopia

A group protesting the death of about 55 people in a stampede that occurred in the Oromia region of Ethiopia have attacked a Dangote cement factory belonging to Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote.

The protesters burnt down truck and machinery at the Dangote Cement Factory in Ada Berge, Oromia. They also burnt down a police station and allegedly set prisoners free in the Bule Hora region of the country.

The cause of the stampede was said to be security men opening fire at a festival, killing about 55 people in its wake. A courtroom and government-owned vehicles were also torched.dangote cement factory
