Kasim Basma Thursday delivered a big envelope to Assistant Superintendent Morrison of Calaba Town Police, to enable him arrest and keep in smelly police cells, a journalist writing for Sierra Express Media, Mr. Ola Berri.
The journalist was arrested shortly after reaching out to the Manager of Foamex Company to cross check from him, concerns leading to the death of three workers.
Upon this, the journalist was taken hostage and later frog matched to Calaba Town Police upon the instruction of Foamex manager Kasim Basma.
At the Calaba Town Police Station, corrupt ASP Morrison, hurriedly ordered his boys to obtain first, a voluntary statement from the journalist, and second, a voluntary caution statement; which to sober police officers, contravenes good policing conduct.
He later ordered his boys to detain the journalist on grounds that the Lebanese and a corrupt APC council accused him (the journalist) of extorting monies from people under the guise of journalism.
“Mr. Samura, Ola was accused by an APC councilor in the Calaba Town community as impersonating as a journalist. He is also accused of extorting monies from people,” unwitting words of ASP Morison- 28 year old police.
It must be noted that the Manager of Foamex factory, on number of occasions, violated safety precaution laws.
He is reportedly engaged in the supply of expired milk to workers.
That he has failed to adhere to health principles and has not supplied workers with safety kits.
In an interview with Manager Basma, he confessed to our reporter that he indeed supplied expired milk to three workers, but denied bearing hands to the death of two workers.
Sources say health workers who pay frequent visits to Foamex factory, receive kick backs from Manager Basma and in turn allows him repeatedly put lives of Sierra Leoneans in peril.
It has reached this press that Manager Basma boasts having the police and Ministry of Health officials in his pocket.
“Sir, an APC councilor, Madam Mary, was at fore to say lies against me” Ola said, “and Manager Kasim Basma was treated like a king by the police especially ASP Morison.”
He noted however that the Foamex Manager surrendered a puffed up envelope to the police and told them to detain him.
It is also revealed that the APC councilor receives money from management of Foamex almost every month so as to enable the management of a private school at Pa Muronko in the Calaba Town area.
Kudos must be given LUC Karrow Kamara and ASP Ibrahim Samura for their timely and professional interventions.
In our next publication, we will unveil names of workers that died as a result of excessive intake of chemicals during production of foam mattresses at Foamex factory.
