Journalist Threatened… Tiffy Tiffy Police Released
An Inspector of Police yesterday threatened to harm Arthur Caulker, a reporter of Sierra Express Media.
Inspector MBayo, who claimed to be the driver of AIG Morie Lengor, approached our reporter Arthur Caulker, at the entrance of the office of CDIID police headquarters Freetown, using words of threat against him.
“Ar go show you say me nar Limba. You just start for write, we don hold on,” words of Inspector T.M MBayo.
It could be recalled that the head of police transport, ASP Barbar Kamara, was recently frog marched to the CID for larceny of vehicles belonging to the Sierra Leone Police.
Investigation later proved that it was Inspector MBayo, who leaked the secret of ASP Barbar’s vehicle theft to his boss AIG Morie Lengor.
Although AIG Lengor later called on this press to dissociate his involvement as was reported in story published by Sierra Express Media, his driver, Inspector MBayo, thoughtlessly caught our reporter at the doors of police HQ, sumptuously throwing invectives at him and further threatened to do him harm.
Inspector MBayo must be made to know that rats should have respect for cats; no regimented or well educated police officer, more so an Inspector of police will irresponsibly behave as Inspector MBayo has done.
It must be noted that Sierra Express Media wrote a concise, factual and accurate story, exposing an officer of the SLP, who, over and again had been in the practice of cannibalizing, stealing and converting vehicles owned by the SLP.
In an interview with the Director of CID, Chief Superintendent Suluku Conteh, it was confirmed that ASP Barbar, who seemingly was on a jolly trip at the CID, has been released on bail.
It was confirmed to this press that ASP Barbar and five others were detained by the CID for theft of police vehicles. He is said to have been singularly released, while the others still languish in the smelly cells at CID.
Unconfirmed information explains how the release of ASP Barbar came as result of unwarranted pressure from top police officers.
Facts, as told to this press, disclosed ASP Barbar, in his statement admitted stealing vehicles belonging to the SLP, but insists he was not alone, he did it with other officers.
It could be recalled that senior police officers, over time, have had their hands in the unscrupulous boarding of vehicles owned by the police, and later used same for private or commercial use.
