የሟቾችን ቁጥር በተመለከተ ያገኘናቸው መረጃዎች የተለያዩ ሲሆኑ ከሆስፒታል ምንጮች ለማረጋገጥ ያደረግነው ጥረት አልተሳካም።

እንደ ነዋሪዎች ከሆነ ግን ቢያንስ ሶስት እና ከዚያ በላይ ሰዎች ተገድለዋል። በጸጥታ ኃይል አባላት ላይም ጉዳት መድረሱን ነዋሪዎች ጨምረው ተናግረዋል።

ያነጋገርናቸው ሌላኛው የቆቦ ነዋሪ የግጭቱን መነሻ ሲያስረዱ፤ ”በወልዲያ ከተማ የተፈጸመው ግድያ ቆቦ ውስጥ ከፍተኛ ውጥረትን ፈጥሮ ነበር። ይህ በእንዲህ እያለ ንብረታችን ሊዘረፍ ወይም ሊወድምብን ይችላል ብለው የሰጉ ሰዎች ንግድ ቤቶቻቸውን በመዝጋት ንብረት ለማሸሽ ሞክረው ነበር። አንዳንድ ወጣቶችም ‘እዚህ ምንም ሳይፈጠር እንዴት ይህን ታደርጋላችሁ’ ብለው መጠየቃቸውን ተከትሎ ግርግር ተፈጠረ ከዚያም ወደ ግጭት አመራ” ሲሉ ያስረዳሉ።

ዛሬ ሐሙስ እሰከ ጠዋቱ 3 ሰዓት ድረስ ከተማዋ ምንም እንኳን ውጥረት ውስጥ ብትቆይም ግጭት አልነበረም የሚሉት ሌላው ነዋሪ ”ከ3 ሰዓት በኋላ ግን በርካታ ወጣቶች ዘለቀ እርሻ ልማት ወደሚባል ድርጅት በመሄድ በድርጅቱ ቅጥር ግቢ ውስጥ የነበሩ ትራክተሮችንና የእርሻ መሳሪያዎችን አወደሙ። ከዚህ በተጨማሪም የድረጅቱ ህንጻ ላይም ጉዳት ደርሷል” ሲሉ ያስረዳሉ።

ከዘለቀ እርሻ ልማት ድርጅት በተጨማሪ ኪወ የእርሻ ልማት እና ባለቤትነቱ የሆላንዳውያን የሆነ ሌላ የእርሻ ልማት ድርጅቶች ላይ ጉዳት መድረሱን የኪወ እርሻ ልማት ባለቤት ለቢቢሲ ተናግረዋል

በወልዲያ ከተማ በጥምቀት በዓል ማግስት የተከሰተውን ተቃውሞ ተከትሎ የፀጥታ ኃይሎች በወሰዱት እርምጃ በርካቶች ህይወታቸውን ማጣታቸው ይታወቃል።

መንግሥት የሟቾች ቁጥር ሰባት ነው ቢልም ያነጋገርናቸው የከተማዋ ነዋሪዎች ግን የሟቾችን እና የቁስለኞችን ቁጥር ከፍ ያደርጉታል።

ከከተማዋ ነዋሪዎች እንደሰማነው ከሟቾቹ መካከል አዛውንቶች እና እድሚያቸው በአስራዎቹ መጀመሪያ ላይ የሚገኙ ሁለት ታዳጊዎች ይገኙበታል።
