Evangelist Samson's death, Sierra Leone Police explains


15th August 2022

The Sierra Leone Police wishes to inform the general public that following the insurrection by misguided individuals on the 10th of
August 2022 resulting in destruction of properties and loss of lives in the affected areas, the security forces have been conducting raids in hideouts for perpetrators of the said insurrection.

Targeted areas in Freetown were successfully raided and suspects arrested were handed over to the Criminal Investigations Department Headquarters at Pademba Road in Freetown for thorough investigations

In order to prevent any other insurrection, similar raids were extended to towns and cities in the provinces including Makeni,
Magburaka and Kamakwie.

Acting on intelligence, the security forces were successful in their raids of several hideouts in Makeni where suspects arrested were handed over to the Police for investigations.

However, when Security forces acting on intelligence on the 14 of August 2022 stormed a place where ex-combatants had assembled poised to make further attacks, they took to their heels. While they were being pursued by the security forces, another group from a makeshift structure at Station Road in Makeni opened fire on them. During the cross fire, one Hassan S. Dumbuya aka Evangelist Samson was killed and four others were arrested. Those arrested are now helping the Police with investigation. One (1) light sub machine gun
9x26mm was found at the scene of the incident (Makeshift structure).

The Sierra Leone Police (SLP) is hereby ordering all those declared wanted to surrender to the nearest Police Station or Post. The SLP is also appealing to the general public to give the Police any useful
information that can lead to the arrest of those perpetrators who are now at large on number 119
While the security forces will continue to pursue the perpetrators of the insurrection for them to be investigated and prosecuted in court, the general public is assured of their safety and security.

Dr John Lahai drops a real clanger...lecturers react

Evidence has surfaced that contradicts one of John Idriss Lahai's claims. And, as I've already stated, it's a clear sign that not everything he writes is true. He is doing the right thing, but depending entirely on rumor may jeopardize his kindness to Sierra Leone. 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. In an exact paraphrase of his "nemakui" English writing skills, Lahai claimed: "Brima Ronnie Kargbo indeed started his Bachelor's degree studies at Njala University. It is also true that he abandoned the course halfway and moved to the UK (this was during the latter part of the civil war: 1996/1997-ish). As such, what is not true, and for which Njala University should investigate (to verify my claim) and, thereafter, sue Brima Ronnie Kargbo for forgery of their certificate (a
