NEC starts cancelling polling stations in Tonko Limba
N’fa Alie Conteh (in photo), Chairman and Chief Electoral Commissioner, who travelled all the way from Freetown to supervise a local council bye-elections in Tonko Limba Ward 196, has ordered for the immediate CANCELLATION of at least one polling station after a bunch of SLPP hoodlums entered the Polling Station-2 at MILE-14 Polling Center.
There will be no counting of ballots cast in that Polling Station as the Votes have been cancelled by Nfa Alie Conteh on the grounds that SLPP hoodlums imported from Freetown, forced their way in after voting concluded just now and scattered papers and voting materials.
Interestingly that area is expected to yield a very high number of votes for APC as it is in the precise neighborhood of the APC candidate where he is very popular.
The move to disrupt the ballots and papers is therefore a deliberate move to have stations with expected high numbers of APC votes, to be cancelled thus reducing the percentage of votes which the APC will score in the Tonko Limba elections.
The SLPP thugs have jumped into their vehicles and are said to be heading to other areas to disrupt counting.
The most interesting part is that the Police are not making any efforts to stop this disruptive behaviour of the SLPP.
The Police is allegedly seem to be taking instructions from Jimmy Battillo Songa, the SLPP National Organising Secretary and Manso Dumbuya, the SLPP Western Area chairman.
The journalist from Awareness Times Newspaper, John Koroma, is still being held by the Police in whose unlawful custody he was last seen. The missing journalist was last seen over 8 hours ago in the hands of Police and SLPP hoodlums who had seized his phones and journalism tools. Nobody has been able to locate him since then. Many other journalists have also fled the area for their safety.
This is surreal inside Sierra Leone. Are we at war? Fellow Citizens, are we at war?
