Dunno, but the oromos are claiming the dirs and well claim him as well if what you're saying is true
It's dirir or dir dhabo which means
dir = tribe
dirir = fight, quarrel
dhabo = rise , move up
it is where dir's fought Italians

Dir is quite old and fragmented tribe. Their homeland is said to be in the Northwest which makes sense but they moved southward (correct me if I'm wrong).

However, I read that the Tomb of Samaroon is alleged near Erigavo. :kanyeshrug:
