By this cruel action more than 114 Oromo students were injured where only very few of wounded students admitted to hospital but the rest are suffering in individuals houses. 50more Oromo students were abducted at mid of the night by gunpoint from their dormitory and trucked by military vehicle to their whereabouts are still mysterious.

On Saturday 9th of April 2011 four more innocent Oromo students namely:

1. Girma Turuna – University of Haro-Maya

2. Dachasa Wirtu Mosia – University of Haro-Maya

3. Gada Ragassa- University of Hawasa – completed his
