Inspector General of Police to face Parliament
No less a person than the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Francis Alieu Munu, will soon face Parliament to answer a query as to why under his administration, the Sierra Leone Police (SLP) has become lawless thereby causing some Parliamentarians to be publicly molested at Mile 38 Check point, and an assault on Honorable Amadu Fofanah, alias Fofie of Constituency 109 by Assistant Superintendent of Police [ASP] Murana attached at the Operational Support Division (OSD) headquarter on September 26 at Sumaila town in Freetown.
This was made known to Journalists at a news conference on Friday, October 18 at Hon Fifie’s 103 Pademba Road office in Freetown.
He said Parliament will ask the Inspector General of Police to explain why he should not be sacked for incompetence as MPs are continuously facing molestation and beatings in the hands of Police Officers.
According to him this has to stop, if not it would augur well for democracy. “As Parliamentarians, we will not sit by and allow the Police to molest us as they use to molest Journalists,” he vowed.
He maintained that if it was under the reign of former Inspector General of Police, Mr. Brima Acha Kamara, some of these Police personnel would have said good bye to the Sierra Leone Police as he was a very disciplined Police Officer who did not condone lawlessness.
He noted that it was because of his strictness and firmness that most Police personnel were saying that Brima Acha Kamara was a wicked man.
He said he could never understand why Police Officers should continuously lord it over unarmed civilians as if they are above the law.
He called on President Ernest Bai Koroma to replace Mr. Francis Alieu Munu now before it is too late, as he maintained that under his reign, the Sierra Leone, was heading for disaster.
He pointed out that he has no grudge for Mr. Francis Alieu Munu, but stressed that it was time for him to go as he is not fit to be at the helm of affairs in the Sierra Leone Police.
