The burning exercise took place in an open space at the Magistrate Court, in the presence of the Press, SLP-Military Liaison Officer, Civil Society, and other members of the public. 

In an interview with the Head of Justice and Legal Support Unit, ASP Daniel Lahai Konneh maintained that it was always a tradition that the court hands over exhibits of such nature to the police for burning immediately after they passed the verdict. He noted that the synergy between the Police and the court has always led to the success of these exercises and today's exercise was not an exception.

Mr. Konneh disclosed that the exhibits were intercepted by Police Personnel deployed at Mamudu Checkpoint, which is situated at Niminkoro Chiefdom, Kono District. 

The matter was then transferred to the Trans-national Organized Crime Unit (TOCU) Kenema where the investigation was completed and the matter was charged to court with unlawful possession contrary to section 13(1) of cap 37 as amended by section 5 of act no. 6 of 1981. 

Consequently, the two suspects, Ishaika Bangura and Aiah Kamanda, all of Koidu Town, were found guilty and fined Two Thousand Leones (NLE. 2,000.00) or run a jail term of six (6) months each.

Brima Ronnie Kargbo, a youthful and charismatic Sierra Leonean who works for NATCOM as the Director of Administration and Human Resource Management Director, was featured in a publication by John Idriss Lahai.
