Reason is simple:

Dictators first deal with the greatest risk to thmselves first. They follow in that order.

Dictators are willing to do anything even kiss shoes to deal with the most threatening.

Isayas biggest threat has always been from outside. That is why he fought with Yemen, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Sudan, and some disagreements with Saudis. Eritreans never questioned even when he fought with Sudan for nothing, for no good reason other than to please America at the time.

...The timing of Mr Abrehe’s arrest is particularly striking, coming a day after the Eritrean and Ethiopian presidents signed a peace agreement in Saudi Arabia. Present at the signing were King Salman, Prince Mohammed bin Salman and United Nations Secretary General Antonio Gutteres, among others, and the two presidents were awarded the Order of King Abdulaziz.

More significantly, the arrest occurred on the eve of the 17th anniversary of the enforced disappearance on 18 September 2001 of pro-reform officials, including parliamentarians, government ministers and ambassadors known as the G-11, and the subsequent  closure of independent media outlets and  jailing of journalists. Many are rumoured to have died due to the harsh conditions that were deliberately imposed on them.
