DESSIE, ETHIOPIA - JANUARY 11: Dr. Mengesha Ayene, president of Wollo University, surveys damage to the administration building at Wollo University done by the TPLF during their 2021 occupation of Dessie on January 11, 2022 in Dessie, Ethiopia. The TPLF moved on the city of Dessie around October 30, 2021, shelling the Wollo University campus which lay on the outskirts of the city causing a complete evacuation of the campus. Several buildings were severely damaged or destroyed during the course of the shelling. Upon entering the campus the TPLF looted the university of every computer, every piece of major medical and science related lab equipment and data technology as well as classroom teaching tools and infrastructure. What ever was not removed and taken back to Tigray was deliberately destroyed. The Dessie campus of Wollo University suffered six billion Ethiopian birr ($120,928,125 million USD) worth of damage. All three campuses of Wollo University suffered combined damages of over eleven billion Ethiopian birr ($239,840,782 million USD). During peacetime the Wollo university hosted 16,000 full time students and was deemed one of the best universities in the country due to its technical and medical programs. (Photo by J.
